The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and the food, especially how it was made and where/how the ingredients were sourced. Couldn't have been more pleased with our short time in Bologna!

If you enjoy food tours then this definitely a must! Be ready to eat plenty! I am Italian and the homemade pasta’s were exceptional. This is the place to experience the cold cuts and cheese. History of chocolate was very interesting. Also this is a beautiful University City. Thank you to our guide Elena!
