Our Bologna Private Walking Tour is a perfect way to orient yourself in this wonderfully historic city. You will meet your private guide who will take you around Bologna as if you were old friends. See the university, one of Italy’s oldest and most prestigious learning centers. Visit the Basilica, the 5th largest church in the world complete with the world’s largest sundial. Lose yourself in Bologna’s central market where traditional Italian daily life spreads out before you. And climb one of Bologna’s famous towers for a panoramic view of the city. Our Bologna Private Walking Tour leaves every day.

There isn’t a much better way to learn about a city than with a local private insider expert showing you around, which is exactly what you’ll get on our Bologna Private Walking Tour. As this is a private tour, the itinerary is flexible but will always include seeing some of the best and most famous sights in Bologna. The tour is centered around Bologna’s famous traditions – La Dotta, the learned (because of Italy’s oldest university), La Rossa, the red (because of the buildings), and La Grassa, the fat (because of the amazing Bolognese cuisine). And you get to learn – and experience – all of it.
