We loved learning about the history of Bologna through food. Bernadetta was great and made the city come alive through teaching us about the different foods of Bologna.

Michela was a great tour guide. She worked in stories about her family and their cooking traditions helping us connect the foods we tried with Italian tradition and life. The tour was one of the highlights of our trip.
