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!

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!!
