Great experience! you got all the information on history and background of the main attractions - and we even went inside some- we ticked all the boxes and had a very interesting tour. Well worth your time and money!
The guide was good, was knowledgeable and spoke English. The two hour walk with visits to various museums, churches and interesting places was a good introduction to Bologna at the start of our break, and whetted our appetite to explore more.
A well constructed tour covering the main sights of the city. A busy tour, there were lots of us, so we used the audio to hear the comments.Native guide's English was very clear. Gave us a good introduction to the city.
Very good, great tourguide!
Great value tour, much better than expected even if the guide was late arriving.... Her knowledge and warmth made up for that and so glad I booked this activity. The walk is flat but some stairs are needed to be climbed in one or two of the stops.
Visiting a new city, taking a city walking tour helps to identify key sites, be able to pass the lines at some locations and to learn about the history and culture of the area. We had an English speaking guide and with the use of the head sets, we were able to hear all of the comments as we went on the tour. Bologna has 28 miles of porticos and the guide pointed out how those evolved to the full extension over the sidewalks. The areas above the porticos were lodging areas for students and without the city guide, that point of information might have been overlooked. We had access to the Theatro Anatomico where anatomy lessons were conducted on cadavers as well as viewing the terracotta sculpture of the Lamentation of Christ. The tour helped to open our eyes to another Italian city.
The guide was very knowledgeable and built the history of the city as we toured. Would highly recommend and well worth the money.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful and the tour was very interesting.
The tour guide for our Walking Tour was excellent I'm sorry that I didn't catch her name. She did the tour in both English and Italian and she moved us along, even though it was pretty cold. I have been to Bologna many times, but never took a tour. I saw things I had never seen before. I especially enjoyed the Anatomy Room in the original University of Bologna the first University in Europe and the amazing law library in the Archigennasio. From there we went to the Church of Santa Maria della Vita and saw the incredible terracotta statues of Niccolo dell'Arca. Incredible images of Mary the mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene and others standing over the body of Jesus laid in the tomb. I have never seen such expressions of pain and grief on statues before. They are masterpieces We then got to the Basilica of San Petronio in time to see the meridian line displaying the sun at its highest point in the sky on the floor of the Basilica. The whole tour was excellent and I highly recommend it!
