Fabulous tour
Hollie_P, Dec 2022
Claudio was by far the nicest tour guide we've had in our 8 days of exploring Italy and all of them have been lovely people! He was extremely accommodating and showed us the highlights of Bologna and explained a lot of the area's history. He's a very talented musician so we left not only with wonderful memories of Bologna but also with beautiful music we can listen to at home via his band's website ( We've been listening to it on the train rides to other cities and it's perfect background for the beautiful Italian countryside! We spent less than 24 hours in Bologna but between Mattia and his Delicious Food tour and Claudio with his private kickstarter tour, we felt we saw all the important sites and experiences the best the city has to offer!
