Overview
Live like a local, escape the tourists with Delicious Bologna! A walking food tour in Bologna, 6 stops at some historical shops to taste the traditional Bolognese food such as tortellini, ragù, mortadella, local wine and much more... We lead you in some small family run shops, away from the tourist area. Quality and respect of the local food tradition are the most important things that we want to enhance with our tour. It's not all, walking through the narrow streets of Bologna you will learn about the culture, traditions and legends which characterize this wonderful city. What's better than discovering a city with a local!? BOLOGNESE CUISINE IS MAINLY PORK BASED, INFORM US IF YOU ARE VEGETARIAN, WE'LL PROVIDE SOME CHEESE INSTEAD OF CURED MEAT.

Had a great time exploring Bologna. It is not a big city by it has many interesting places to visit and food to taste. I sometimes find history tours too much to take in, so having frequent stops to taste the local food was perfect. 👌
