What to expect

This is the perfect bike tour to enjoy total immersion in the great history of Bologna. Discover the very best of the city in just 2 hours: from the oldest university in the world to the magnificent Piazza Maggiore, you will ride under the Two Towers, one of Bologna's most important landmarks, and along its amazing porticoes.

Starting from the modern district of Manifattura delle Arti, you’ll be guided through the story of the medieval port of Bologna towards the well-preserved Prendiparte Tower. You’ll discover the importance of the Jewish community passing through the former Jewish Ghetto and get to the main symbol of Bologna, the Two Towers.

Cycling surrounded by the porticoes, you’ll reach Bologna’s impressive main square, Piazza Maggiore, where you’ll admire some of the most important buildings in town: Palazzo d'Accursio, the amazing Basilica of San Petronio, the Fountain of the Neptune and Palazzo Re Enzo. Discover the Archiginnasio, the first seat of the University of Bologna, the oldest one in the western world.

You'll then move towards the Basilica of San Domenico, built to preserve the saint’s remains and the seat of masterpieces by sculptors Nicola Pisano, Niccolò dell'Arca and a young Michelangelo. You’ll discover hidden squares and ancient suburbs, thus reaching the extraordinary Piazza Santo Stefano with its Basilica, whose origins go back to the birth of Christianity.

Your tour will end in Via Piella, one of the few points in the city where the water canals that nourished the mills and gave energy to the medieval Bologna are still visible through the famous "finestrella" (little window).
