What to expect

This food and wine tour will lead you into the discovery of Bologna and its history through the classical dishes of its regional traditions.

Bologna, the capital city of Emiglia-Romagna, is traditionally called “the Wise” thanks to its oldest university in Europe, “the Red” for the red roofs of its houses, and “the Rich” for its food traditions and culinary excellence which you will get to explore together with your local guide!

Over five different stops, you'll begin with a rich appetizer of local cured meats and warm hand-baked bread, and you'll try the famous plate of classic tortellini or tagliatelle – impossible to miss out on when in Bologna! Typical fried meat with cream, parmesan cheese and smoke ham is another delight you'll be able to try.

The meal and the tour will end with a slice of cake (or an artisanal gelato) and a high-quality espresso. This is a wonderful day exploring the city and trying local produce all in one!
