Three Days in Bologna and Modena between Motor Culture and Cuisine

I therefore want to give you some suggestions to discover Bologna, the red, the learned and the fat. Why is it so called? Red for the colors of the bricks with which the towers and palaces were built and for the political alignment of the inhabitants and for the car and engine houses that are located between Modena and Bologna. Dotta because it has the oldest university in the world. Cradle of culture. Fat for food (tortellini, lasagna, mortadella) and for the rounded shapes of the Bolognese girls. A three-day guided tour with guide and guide to discover the secrets of Bologna and its surroundings. A journey for everyone, a 360 ° view of the capital of Emilia thanks to our certified guides and escorts.
