What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Gourmet Walking Tour of Bologna - Pasta, Mortadella and Chocolate

Visit a Mortadella shop on your private tour!

You'll visit a traditional bakery, followed by a pasta maker where you'll learn about the production of Tortellini and Tagliatelle. Continue to Beccari's salsamenteria to discover the history of mortadella, from the third century BC right up until modern times.

The highlight of the tour is perhaps your visit to a traditional chocolate maker, where solid chocolate was invented! Your tour also includes a visit to a typical Bolognese osteria (restaurant), to discover the fun-loving side of Italy's oldest university.

This in-depth, hassle-free private tour is hosted by an English-speaking guide. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, so they can prepare for your private tour.

We were so fortunate to have our fantasic gude, Cecelia, all to ourselves for this charming, informative walking tour. We visited the open markets, ate cheese, breads, and mouth-watering carpaccio, saw the oldest wine store in all of Bologna, the chocolatiers, and made an unscheduled (and incredibly informative) dash through St. Dominic's because we had expressed our interest in seeing it, too. Such fun!
