Tour by Gabriele
Local Guru

I’m a certified Tour Leader in Emilia Romagna and with me, you can discover the original charm and lively character of the fascinating cities in this region, get insider stories, and 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. I keep unique memories of each of those places, because I have been fortunate enough to share my experiences with locals, and I acknowledge how this aspect can make a visit unique.

Walk, eat, drink and have fun on this unique adventure to one of the most famous Bolognese hill. In just one afternoon we’ll take you on an epic journey which will start from Porta Saragozza, continue along the longest portico in the world, pass through the beautiful Neo-Classical 18th century Villa Spada and the walk will finish at the San Pellegrino Park, where you can admire the stunning view of the town of Bologna, as well as the sanctuary of San Luca, one of the city’s most famous icon.

At the end of our hike, you will enjoy a delicious picnic, and we will toast with a refreshing glass of regional wine (Pignoletto) to celebrate the local walk and savour freshly baked crescenta bolognese with the unmissable mortadella and more delicacies. After the picnic we will go back to the city, ready to embrace again the charming Bologna, admired from the top just a few minutes before.

Be a true local and come to walk with us this terrific road and eat our divine food which is not ambrosia but, modesty aside, it may be even better!

This experience is created by ‘Like Locals in Italy’, a cultural association that aims to offer both visitors and locals unique experiences.

Excellent tour
for Gabriele’s tour (Bologna Street Food Experience)
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..

Gabriele is a fantastic guide
for Gabriele
Gabriele knows his city and is passionate about his city- we had a great tour which he tailored for my interests including the local market. It was great to see the less known side of Bologna. He is also fun and relaxed.
