What you'll do

I will bring you to the typical and local food markets. We will go shopping in the best food shops of Bologna, where usually locals go. We will taste local salumi, local cheese and home-made pasta, and local wine of course! We will go also to a special ancient indoor market, where you can buy specialities of the town to bring home! I will suggest you what to but and how to cook it. We Will also have amazing gelato!
You will enjoy the special atmosphere that makes the district so special, lively and energetic while learning more about things you can’t miss when visiting Bologna.

IMPORTANT: the price of the food and the drinks are not included, everyone will pay for himself, i will suggest you what to buy, to taste, and where, i will be your "food guide" ! (If you want to try all that i suggest, you will spend not more than €17/18 each person, so cheaper than a food tour with "all included"!).
The tour will be different on Sundays because not all the markets will be open.

Benedetta is a true local and it shows. She takes you to all the non-obvious places while still giving you a great introduction to what makes Bologna special in gastronomy. She is very personable and was able to create a good dynamic amongst the guests in the group. We even made some new friends who we stuck with after the experience for drinks!
