After only 3 years of living here, I got curious and wanted to know more about the city that adopted me, other than the obvious things like tortellini and ragu! That's how the adventure of an expert tour girl began: hearing stories from 'nonnas', learning the bolognese lifestyle, the long walks through the small streets and the books written about the mysteries and legends made me discover the city in a way I've never seen it.

Where you'll be

Bologna has many legends, secrets and stories to be told! Along with them we'll visit some monuments, hidden places and we'll go back in time looking for the Roman ruins, the gothic style and all the different architectural structures that are left for us to keep. Did you know that our grandmother's original recipes are being kept in a hidden place? We'll also see the line that splits the Earth in half.
