Description

From art to history to good food, discover Bologna in all its aspects on this private trip with round-trip private transportation from Florence. Enjoy a guided walking tour through the city, a 2-course restaurant lunch, and tickets for the iconic San Luca Express. The private transfer will pick you up directly from your accommodation in Florence and take you to Bologna’s city center, from where you will start your tour in the city. You will be greeted by a staff member upon arrival, who will introduce you to your private guide. With your guide, discover the center of Bologna, admiring some of the most beautiful and important buildings of the city. Visit the Church of San Petronio, patron saint of the city, which was the seat of some important historical events, such as the imperial coronation of Charles V in 1530. From there, move on to admire the courtyard of the Archiginnasio, one of the oldest and most relevant libraries in the city. The guide will then take you to the historic market, also known as Quadrilatero, where the street names still echo the old crafts of the past: Via Caprarie, Via Pescherie, and more. Witness time that has stopped in these history-rich spots. Continue toward the Asinelli Tower, the symbol and bulwark of the city, of which the guide will tell you stories and anecdotes. If walking also makes you hungry, after your journey through the streets of Bologna, you’ll settle in a typical inn where you can relax while enjoying a 2-course lunch in the name of tradition: cold cuts and a typical dish of your choice, accompanied by a glass of wine and water. After lunch, set out to discover the famous hills of Bologna aboard the San Luca Express. Sit back on this classic train as it takes you to the Basilica of San Luca. This imposing complex has dominated the city since 1195 and has become a symbol of home for locals. The train will then take you directly back to the city center, from where you’ll be picked up once again via private transportation to head back to Florence after your full day in Bologna.
