Your experience


  • Explore Bologna with an expert guide
  • Find out more about the products manufactured in this city
  • Enjoy the tasting of local balsamic vinegar


Get to know Bologna, its sights and its local products.

During this tour you will have the opportunity to visit the traditional shops in the Jewish Ghetto and the "Quadrilatero". If you wish, we can also visit one or more museums - the Davia Bargellini Museum, the International Music Museum or the Industrial Culture Museum.

Otherwise, we can visit a Sfoglina, a traditional pasta maker who usually works in the morning, enjoy a free tasting of the traditional balsamic vinegar and learn all about the Quadrilatero.

If you would like to learn how to prepare local pasta, I could optionally organise a class costing 100 euros per person. Alternatively, I can accompany you to FICO, Eataly, where one-hour public food workshops cost from 15 euros. For 50 Euro you can book the courses in small groups.

Please note

Additional information

If you decide to participate in a course at Fico, our tour ends there because the courses have their own guides.

Included in the price

  • Guided city tour with professional guide
  • Balsamic vinegar tasting
  • Visit a Sfoglina
  • Food workshops
  • Optional wine and some rice cake (5 Euros)

Meeting point

Tourist Office at Piazza Maggiore.

Cancellation Conditions

You must cancel 31 days before for a full refund. If you can't make the date then you can change it for another day. A full refund will only be given due to Force Majeure. Force Majeure’ refers to an impersonal or extraordinary circumstance or event that prevents one or both parties bound by a contract from fulfilling their contractual obligation. In practical terms for ToursByLocals guides, it means that if a traveler is prevented from participating in their tour for a reason outside of their control, they are eligible for a full refund of their purchase.

Examples of Force Majeure include:

-A cruise ship missing its port of call -A flight cancellation -A state-issued travel warning which advises against travel to the destination country or an applicable region. (Issued after the tour booking date.) -An act of war, terrorism, or civil insurrection -A natural disaster

Events that do not constitute Force Majeure include:

-Illness -Poor weather -Change of plans -Oversleeping

When I receive notice of a Force Majeure cancellation, from either traveler or guide, we first confirm that the nature of the cancellation does in fact invoke my Force Majeure provision. This may involve confirming pertinent details with a relevant cruise line, airline, or state agency. Once this is confirmed, I will issue a full customer refund I do not earn profit from a tour which has been cancelled due to Force Majeure. However, I believe strongly that I should not suffer a financial loss due to this type of cancellation either. For this reason, whenever I receive notice of a Force Majeure Cancellation, I, the guide will provide a summary of any costsI have incurred as a result of the cancellation. Any costs claimed must relate to unrecoverable expenses. If I have spent money out of my own pocket to secure non-refundable entrance fees, private drivers, equipment rentals, or any other unrecoverable cost, these will be made known so that the appropriate amounts can be reimbursed. Hard copy receipts for unrecoverable expenses will always be kept by myself.

It is worth noting that some regions are particularly prone to Force Majeure cancellations. Cruise ships traveling in Patagonia, Macaronesia, and the South Pacific are prone to frequent rerouting. Rail company strikes and general strikes occur in Europe with some regularity. You may know of unique local conditions in your own area that expose you to the risk of Force Majeure cancellations. Even if not, consider the events of the 2010 season after the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland. This eruption prompted hundreds of flight cancellations and re-routings worldwide. Guides located in land-locked or normally uneventful regions are not immune to Force Majeure. Our advice is to use your tour pricing to budget for a reasonable number of Force Majeure cancellations to occur each year. This way, when one happens, it won’t negatively impact your earnings.

This deal can be cancelled for free up to 31 days before the date of the activity.
