What you'll do

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.

(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 food tour with Benedetta was great! The locations were very thoughtful chosen. We ate delicious, local Italian food while getting advice on how to prepare it. We also heard a lot about the Italian culture. We really enjoyed it and definitely recommend to do the food tour while in bologna!!

Benedetta gave me a great insight in the Bologna secret food mysteries. She let me taste great food in small bespoke places. I loved it very much and liked Benedetta as a warm person as well. She speaks English very well and knows a lot about good food. Very recommended 🙌

We had a great time on Benedetta's tour! She has loads of good knowledge on the local food culture but also on the city of Bologna and other places in Italy. She was able to answer all our questions, adapted the tour to our needs and showed us some really great places. It is great value and Benedetta is a great person! We would highly recommend this tour for people looking to learn more about Bologna and its food.

Benedetta was the perfect host for our food tour. She was extremely knowledgeable and her English was perfect. We felt welcomed throughout and at no point did the tour feel rushed, even with our small children causing chaos at times. It was brilliant! I would highly recommend this tour and Benedetta to all of my friends! Thank you!

I really enjoyed Benedetta’s tour today. She showed us the highlights of Bolognas food scene. We had a delicious lunch and wine. I especially liked that she also helped us with tips for other things to do in Bologna. I wanted to do a wine tour and she even called the winery for me! And she recommended vintage shops I can go to. So the tour went above and beyond what I expected. Thank you Benedetta!

We had a great time and discovered things that we wouldn’t be able to discover on our own. Benedetta was friendly, outgoing and easy to talk to. The content of the tour was great, but Benedetta also helped us with things beyond the scope of the tour (like information about buying the bus tickets).
