Full description
This is an intensive itinerary which incorporates both art and churches plus Bologna's gastronomic excellence in the atmospheric, colonnaded capital of the rich Italian region of Emilia-Romagna. The tour will start at Piazza Maggiore, the heart of Bologna, with its famous red buildings. See the city hall, the Podestà Palace, the famous Neptune's Fountain and Palazzo di Re Enzo. Admire the Basilica of Saint Petronio (with a visit inside subject to opening hours), one of the largest churches in the world and the longest sundial in Europe.

Continue with a visit to the first seat of the University of Bologna, Archiginnasio and then the leaning towers of Asinelli and Garisenda. Walk in the historical food market called the Quadrilateral while talking about local specialties.

Some interesting churches will also be included on this tour such as Santa Maria della Vita and its sanctuary, which houses the famous terracotta sculptures "Compianto sul Cristo Morto" by Niccolò dell'Arca, and Saint Steven's Basilica, better known as the Seven Churches Complex.
