After visiting Rome, Siena and Florence our first impression when coming to Bologna wasn’t the love from the first sight ‍♀️ However, the walking tour with the brilliant guide in English-Paola, gave us a different perspective of the city. We were told so much more details and interesting facts that we read about in our guidebook. Highly recommended!!

Margarita was an exceptional guide, providing potted histories and interesting and funny stories about all the sites. She went at our pace, answering all our questions, and we gained a good insight into the amazingly complicated history of this lovely town. She spoke excellent English and the 2 hour tour went by far too quickly! If you can, get onto this tour. We went on our first day in Bologna and were able to pick places from our tour that we wanted to see again. Very useful!

An excellent introduction on our first visit to Bologna. We were staying for a few days so we received several very good pointers to places we wanted to revisit in more depth. However even if we had only been there for a day or so, this tour would have given us a superb "feel" for the city and its history.
