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!
Our guide was extremely knowledgable and shared many tidbits of information not found in a guidebook or history book. Well worth the the time
Informative and enjoyable

This walking tour was led by a very informative English speaking guide. The pace was good and we were taken into places we might not have discovered by ourselves. The tour content took us into areas we could revisit later.

I loved this tour. The tour guide was a local and was very knowledgeable. You could tell she was proud of Bologna and truly loved her city. It was one of my favorite things we did in all of Italy. I highly recommend the tour. The only tip I have is to bring cover ups for your arms and legs. I wasn't aware we were going into a church during the tour and missed out on that part because I didn't have anything to cover my shoulders and legs. My husband wore a tank top and also could not go in. You can buy a cover up for one Euro in the church, but we just arrived and didn't have any cash on us.
Wonderful information and sightseeing!
