I’m a certified Tour Leader in Emilia Romagna and with me, you can discover the original charm and lively character of this fascinating city, get insider stories, discover hidden gems and local markets.

If it's true that the place where we are born says so much about us, then Bologna and generally my region Emilia Romagna represent my best business card. I love good food, good company and traditions, but at the same time, I consider myself a curious globetrotter.

This last aspect has led me to explore different cultures, languages, and countries: I've lived in Estonia, Spain, Germany, and Canada at different stages of my life. Of every place, I keep unique memories; this is because I have been fortunate enough to share my experiences with locals, and I acknowledge how this aspect can make a visit unique.

Description

One of the ideal destinations while visiting Bologna and Emilia Romagna region, is the city of Modena. The town is perhaps most famous as the home of some of Italy’s most famous automotive brands such as Ferrari and Maserati – but it's quickly becoming a place of interest especially for foodies, who come here to discover the culinary delights of Modena, and its quiet and genuine life.

We'll meet at Bologna train station and, after a fast 30-minute train ride, we'll stroll through the ancient streets of Modena city centre, reach the main square Piazza Grande and admire the UNESCO world heritage Cathedral and the Ghirlandina tower. We then experience the foodie heart of Modena, historical Mercato Albinelli, where you'll discover Modena's culinary tradition by tasting some local products like Prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano Reggiano and Lambrusco wine. Next, you'll walk along unexplored corners of the old town and visit some historical "botteghe" (family-run shops) where you'll have the chance to taste and buy traditional Aceto Balsamico and other local products.

An amazing night tour on foot
for Gabriele’s tour (Discover Bologna on Foot)
This is one of the best tours I had .. Gabrielle is such a knowledgeable guide who is very passionate about his city ... He brings you to very nice places you probably won’t find them yourself .... I had a course and my schedule was extremely tight so he tailored the tour according to my schedule and was very keen to show me everything in the beautiful Bologna..I highly recommend Gabrielle to anyone visiting Bologna
Great guide
for Gabriele
Gabriele met me at the agreed location and time. He was very clear about the meeting location. He then took me around the town and showed me all the important sites. He is from Bologna and he knows a lot about the city and the area; its history, culture, heritage and architecture. However, more importantly he is passionate and motivated. He really cares about what he is doing and he wanted to make sure I get the best experience. I highly recommend him and when I go back to Bologna, I will definitely book a tour with him again.
Fabulous Time
for Gabriele’s tour (Discover Bologna on Foot)
Gabriele was wonderful! He showed us all around Bologna and was very knowledgeable. We went into several beautiful churches and he had much advice as to what else to see and do in Bologna. It’s a beautiful city.... we ended our tour sharing a glass of wine. Couldn’t ask for a better guide!!
