Overview
Experience Bologna culture with walking food tour that skips the city’s conventional tourist restaurants.

Sample food from its medieval market and ancient shops while your guide gives insight into local traditions and culture you might miss wandering alone.

What to Expect
Your tour begins at a central location. After you’ve arrived, take a stroll around while a guide tells you about local history, art, and architecture. See Basilica di San Petronio, Archiginnasio, the old University of Bologna, Two Towers, a medieval food market, and other city highlights. Stop at the oldest bakery in Bologna to sample a torta di riso (rice cake). Then, continue to the city’s ancient chocolate factory, where the first sfoglia nera was created, and sample its chocolate specialties. Afterward, get a taste of cured meats and cheeses with local breads and wine at a deli. There are two more stops on the sampling feast: a pasta laboratory for homemade egg pasta and a gelato shop. Receive a cookbook with a selection of traditional recipes, and get ready for an afternoon nap.
