This is a nice tour to get a quick overview of some of the main sights in Bologna. Perfect for those visiting the city for a (half) day. However, we found it strange the way our guide presented all the places we visited. Every time, she would say something like 'if you want to, we can stop here or visit there'. And what if someone in the group would have said no? Would she just skip some of the main sights? Just sounded a bit unprofessional to hear her ask this for pretty much every sight we covered. Apart from that, a good tour.

100% worth doing! There were so many hidden gems all with in the immediate perimeter of the Piazza Maggiore. We would never have known about the charming tucked away streets and areas with great stories and interesting facts. It really made our experience in Bologna 10 times more special and would recommend to all.

After visiting Rome, Siena and Florence our first impression when coming to Bologna wasn’t the love from the first sight ‍♀️ However, the walking tour with the brilliant guide in English-Paola, gave us a different perspective of the city. We were told so much more details and interesting facts that we read about in our guidebook. Highly recommended!!
