What to expect

Bologna is, and has always been, a cultural and social avant-garde city in Italy. It is not surprising that the most famous street artists have left their mark on its walls which are now perfectly embedded in the urban context. This street art bike tour takes you to the most impressive and colorful examples of murals in Bologna, both downtown and in the suburbs, in the company of a guide.

Your tour guide will lead you through bike lanes to discover the post-industrial Bologna, a fantastic immersion in places and contexts completely off the traditional tourist tracks. Enjoy a guided tour through murals and graffiti that were considered an act of vandalism until recently, but are now seen as genuine artworks, shattering the greyness and monotony of the city and transforming the urban spaces in open-air museums.

You will have the chance to see the murals of the university district such as the one painted by Luís Gutiérrez in 1988 in Via Zamboni, displaying the history of South America, perfectly immersed in the surrounding historical neighborhood. In the central Piazza Azzarita, you will stop to admire a collage by Levalet called The Hunt where 30 ninjas in black clothes are hunting a rhinoceros.

Riding towards the outskirts of the city you will see a work by Hitnes, a Roman artist who takes inspiration from the world of animals, and passing through Villa Angeletti park you'll reach other places decorated by murals such as The Philosophical Tree by Andreco in Via dello Scalo, Daim’s mural in Via Fioravanti and many others.
