Tour description provided by Viator

Take a private guided walking tour through the medieval market of Bologna and explore the history, art and traditions of the city and its famous food. With only a few hours to spare, it's the ideal way to savor the history, art and traditions of Bologna. You'll enjoy personalized attention from your professional guide on this gourmet walking tour.

You'll visit a traditional bakery, followed by a pasta maker where you'll learn about the production of Tortellini and Tagliatelle. Continue to Beccari's salsamenteria to discover the history of mortadella, from the third century BC right up until modern times. The highlight of the tour is perhaps your visit to a traditional chocolate maker, where solid chocolate was invented! Your tour also includes a visit to a typical Bolognese osteria (restaurant), to discover the fun-loving side of Italy's oldest university. This in-depth, hassle-free private tour is hosted by an English-speaking guide. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, so they can prepare for your private tour.
