Christina was a fantastic guide on this fascinating two hour tour of Piazza Maggiore, San Petronio, the old university, and San Stefano. We left with a real sense of the independent spirit of Bologna through the ages.

Nice Tour with one caveat
Nigel_R

Very good tour guide and tour. Much of this tour is at the Beautiful cathedral. Do be aware that if you bring your mother sister daughter they will be subject to special scrutiny of their attire in the presence of armed guards. No issue for males unless you are wearing a tank top but many females have to pay to enter and put on more clothes. It is very uncomfortable but Bolognians seem to just accept this discrimination willingly.

There is so much history in the city's centre. This can only be appreciated with this walking tour. Sara was our experienced and knowledgeable guide. She had history and anaecdotes with otherwise random objects on the street. She was excellent, and would highly recommend!

Guide was lovely with good English and chose shady spots but be sure to wear a longer skirt on a tour or you might not be allowed into the church!

Thank you for your review. One does not enter churches with shorts and we have written this in the important notes.

Anita_K

The tour was in Italian and English. Although there were only two Italian speakers on the tour, the guide focused on speaking with them in Italian. His English was good, but he did have a strong accent and spoke very fast even when asked to slow down. That combined with the poor acoustic of the ear piece provided by the tour made it possible to only hear about 60% of what the guide said. He was quite knowledgeable and could, under other circumstances, have provided an excellent tour.
