“Bologna is celebrated for producing popes, painters, and sausage.” – Lord Byron
Bologna actually is famous all around the world for tortellini, lasagna and bolognese sauce, but has much more to offer! Taking this guided tour, you will be enchanted by its magnificent palaces and their splendor that characterized the old town center. And you will be surprised to know that BOLOGNA is also known as “the small Venice”with its secret canals!

After this tasting, we will arrive at Mezzo Market in which we’ll be enveloped in different food smells… we will be able to immerse ourselves in the ancient Bologna and see why Bologna was renamed “Bologna the fat”.
