What you'll do

First of all, we'll meet in Piazza Maggiore. There, I'll show you around starting with the Neptune Fountain. Then, we'll go to the biggest church in Bologna, Saint Petronio. After, just a short walk away, we'll go to the Archiginassio Library, a spectacular demonstration of Italian Architecture. I'll take you to the Anatomical Theater as well, tickets offered by me! A historical masterpiece, it's where medical students learned Anatomy, directly from the human bodies in front of them!

You can't visit Bologna without going to the Two Towers! I'll take you there and let you know the particular story that's behind its construction.

After showing you some of my favorite spots, we'll go to Via delle Pescherie, and enter into the world Bologna is famous four: food! Situated in the center, this street is filled with restaurants and markets. By now, you'll probably be hungry so I'll recommend the best Italian restaurant there is! You'd be surprised by the deliciousness.

Don't forget I'll be your personal photographer as well, and I'll follow your pace the whole time! To finish of the tour, you'll be gifted with a Polaroid photo as a memory of your trip!

** this is NOT a professional tour guide! It is Bologna, from my point of view!
Other things to note
Please wear clothes that are moderately covered as we'll be entering the church.

Mers was a fantastic guide and went to the extra effort to make a list of suggestions for lunch and activities afterwards, even walking us to the restaurant.

Meeting Mers is like visiting an old friend in their city and letting them guide you through your travels. She’s thoughtful and full of stories and history of bologna. She lets you in on secrets of the city that are either mind blowing or interactive. At some point she will point out places to eat, shop, relax, and even gave us a list of activities and food to enjoy. We would have been lost in this city of many things to do and places to eat. If you come to Bologna, this tour of the city and it’s mysteries will leave you pleased and encouraged to come back.
