Immerse yourself in the food, wine, and cuisine of Bologna on a full-day food tour from Florence with a local foodie guide. Learn about the history and production of Parmesan, prosciutto, balsamic vinegar, and wine, with tastings at each location. This small-group culinary tour includes round-trip train tickets from Florence, a guided tour of Bologna, four tours and tastings, and a six-course traditional lunch with locally-made wine.
  • Full-day Bologna food tour
  • Travel by high-speed train
  • Visit local producers for tours and tastings
  • Sommelier-led vineyard walk
  • Traditional six-course lunch with wines
  • Free time to explore Bologna
Make your way to the Florence S.M. Novella railway station for a morning departure, and enjoy views of the Tuscan landscape on the high-speed trip to Bologna Centrale (this tour includes reserved seats in a 2nd-class car).

Upon arrival in Bologna, meet a guide for the trip to a local Parmesan producer; you’ll travel in an air-conditioned minivan that’s Wi-Fi equipped and stocked with bottled water. Visit a series of three producers that create some of the area’s most distinctive products: Parmesan, prosciutto, and balsamic vinegar. At each stop, explore the history and production of each food, followed by a guided tasting.

Continue to a local vineyard for a sommelier-led tour of the vines and a wine tasting that will whet your appetite for an indulgent, 6-course lunch in a family-run Bologna restaurant. Sit down to a traditional Italian meal with locally-produced wines, tasting your way through a menu that changes with the season.

After lunch, you’ll have some free time to explore Bologna on your own before returning to Bologna Centrale. The guide can offer tips on where to explore in Bologna, and will drop you off at the station and make sure you find your train back to Florence.

The tour is wonderful and our tour guide is more than awesome! I think her name is Tamara. She is knowledgeable, patient and full of life, the tour is filled with lots of laughter. The Lunch is good too! And we had LOTS of wine.

One of the highlights of our trip. Viator ably accommodated a late reservation for our cousins who surprised us in Florence. We were all able to travel to Bologna for the tour. Our guide Massimo, was a knowledgeable and entertaining. The food producers were passionate about sharing their expertise.
