Bologna is a must for tourists who visit the North of Italy. Bologna in fact is not only art, history and architecture, but also good food and this certainly will not leave indifferent even the most intellectual of the tourists. After visiting squares, churches and leaning towers, a well-deserved lunch at a good restaurant to try local specialties cannot be missed. Looking at dish of tortellini, Bologna mortadella or Parmesan every tourist will feel like in front of the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo.

Tiber Limousine Service recommends a day trip to Bologna to all tourists staying in Florence, Milan and Venice. A day trip that will immerse you deep in the heart of Italy.

Do you know the nicknames of Bologna? Bologna is known as “la Dotta” and this because the oldest university in Europe was founded here and still nowadays there is an intense cultural life with thousands and thousands of students.
The second nickname is “la Rossa” , given the large following that the Communist Party has always had in this city and also because of the colors of the terracotta roofs. Bologna is also known as “la grassa” because the local cuisine is one of the most interesting of Italy. Just think of the Bolognese sauce and tortellini in broth.

For day tours from Florence we recommend pick up at 8:00 am and in about an hour our driver will take you to Bologna. Upon arrival you will be immediately struck by a peculiarity: in Bologna, many people prefer to use bicycles instead of cars. In fact riding a bicycle in Bologna is really nice and you’ll enjoy the happy atmosphere in a city not strangled by cars. And you’ll also like walking in Bologna, a unique experience not to be missed especially when it rains! The famous porticoes of Bologna in fact allow you to walk without getting wet. You will love the walks for shopping under the shelter of the porticoes while it’s raining cats and dogs. The length of porticoes is almost forty kilometers so take food and beverages with you if you want to visit in depth!

The heart of Bologna is Piazza Maggiore with its magnificent cathedral of San Petronio and the Fountain of Neptune. After visiting the cathedral, you cannot miss a visit of the two leaning towers of Bologna, in particular we recommend to climb the taller of the two towers, called Torre degli Asinelli (Asinelli tower), but the brave tourists will also climb the Garisenda tower. The Asinelli tower is about 100 meters high and is the ideal place for a panoramic view of Bologna. You can take wonderful photos from up there and The climbing to the top will surely make you hungry but don’t worry! Our driver will come to your rescue and take you to some nice restaurant where you can rest and taste the best traditional dishes.
