Full description

Discover the seven churches of the Santo Stefano basilica. Some say it was built in 430 AD with the seven churches representing the places where the Passion of Christ had taken place. Learn how others believe it was commissioned by Saint Petronio, built on top of the ruins of a pagan temple. Explore the churches of the Crucifix, of the Calvary, and of Saints Vitale and Agricola. Wander through Pilato's courtyard, remarkable for the marble basis. Make sure to take notice of the large amount of  paintings, sculptures, and other works of arts but not from different periods in time. At the end of your visit, take a look inside the amazing Corte Isolani and discover all the secrets that are kept inside it.

Our guide, Margarita, wowed us with her knowledge and attention to detail. Her grasp of history and art astonished us, and she gave us the exact right amount and type of information to hold our interest. She's charming and she made us feel special. And when we asked, she gently steered us to a fantastic restaurant, thus making our first night in Bologna a perfect one.
