Few people know that under today’s squares and palaces are hidden the traces of an unknown city, the underground Bologna… Discover it with our guide on this alternative tour!

Accompanied by our local guide, you can take a walk to discover the Bolognese water network immersed in the green of nature among canals, mills and reservoirs...

Our first destination will be a panoramic viewpoint: “San Michele in Bosco”, and then we will descend to reach an even more mysterious and fascinating place: “Bagni di Mario”, certainly one of the most surprising places of the underground route.
From the Renaissance period, it was built to feed the Fountain of Neptune which celebrated Pope Pius IV de’ Medici. Of octagonal plan, this fascinating brick environment collected water from the surrounding hills, purifying it with an ingenious system of decantation tanks.

At the end of our excursion, a rich aperitif with cocktails and typical Bolognese appetizers awaits us!
