Local Guru

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.

Gabriele, our guide, has really a lot of knowledge about the (history of) the city. He brings you to very nice places you probably won't find yourself. Excellent food and drinks as well.

Wonderful morning cruising the streets of Bologna
for Gabriele’s tour (Discover Bologna on Foot)
We spent the morning wandering through the red city with Gabriele, in and out of the sights and under the porticos. We thoroughly enjoyed his historical and cultural insights & perspective on modern life here. He also arranged tours with other Like a Local guides for us - an aperitivo tour with Sonia and hiking with Enrica which were fabulous & meant we covered a lot in 2 days. Gabriele’s tips on restaurants & shopping we’re spot on too, so we felt like we had a very authentic & local experience in Bologna..
