What to expect

Food is a serious thing in Bologna. It is no coincidence that the city is worldwide known for its excellent cuisine that you can try in one of the countless restaurants and trattorie. Take part in a bike tour both of the historical and artistic heritage of the city and especially of its culinary traditions.

The tour guide will ride you through the city center of Bologna, cycling along its porticoes in search of the remaining traces of the Middle Ages, such as the charming Two Towers.

In the university district, you will discover that Bologna boasts the oldest university in the western world, while in Piazza Maggiore you will get to know the buildings and churches that make up the heart of this city.

After a pleasant ride between the main landmarks of Bologna, your tour guide will accompany you through the narrow, scented and crowded alleys of the oldest marketplace in the city, the so-called Quadrilatero, where the oldest botteghe (grocery shops), the best delicatessen and wine stores in the city will inebriate your senses with their products.

During the tour you will stop for a tasting of Bologna’s traditional cuisine: you'll first try our famous aperitivo with appetizers and a glass of wine/beer or spritz. Then, you'll enjoy a selection of cold cuts and homemade bread, combined with a good wine or beer.
