My family had a great and very memorable experience with Stella. She is very knowledgeable about the city of Bologna, his history and it’s culture - old and new. My family really, really enjoyed our time spent with her. She recommended some great restaurants for us too! We loved Bologna and if/when we return we will definitely look forward to spending more time with her! Thanks Stella!!!

I have been to Bologna many times, but visiting it with a guide is truly an experience to do. The next time I return I will use the guide service again, for different and more specific routes.

Very enjoyable walking tour of the centre of Bologna. It lasts about two hours with the first hour focussed mainly on the main square.. very easy pace and not too far a walk.

Our guide was excellent, really great explanations and made Bol8gna sound an exciting part of Italian history.!

A very good guide - as knowledgeable as she was friendly!
