Gabriel’s Beautiful Bologna
Gabriele’s enthusiasm is palpable and his depth of knowledge is impressive. His warmth matched his city’s welcoming environment. From the towers to the churches to the various neighborhoods to the institutions, we had an energetic, fascinating 5 hours. Don’t miss this tour.

A half day in Bologna with a local
Oct 2019 • Solo
In October 2019 I traveled from Canada on my own to Bologna for a week. I was very pleased that I had arranged a half day tour ahead of time. I met my guide Gabriele the second morning in Bologna. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Since my Italian is very limited, it was wonderful that he spoke such great English.
He introduced me to the historic centre and we visited interest historic churches, outdoor sculptures, science centers and the university area. There were also practical tips about the tourist center and location of markets and restaurants near to my residence.
During a break Gabriele helped me to plan my upcoming week and mark locations for art galleries and other sites on my map.
This tour really helped me to have a great time in Bologna. I would highly recommend Gabriele as a tour guide!

Travel to Italy for my wife’s birthday
Oct 2019 • Couples
Sofia Baroncini gave us today an excellent tour half day in Bologna. We really enjoy this experience and want to express her our gratitude for her knowledge and kindness. She is an art expert and you can feel that she really dominates and enjoy what she did. We deserve her the best in her studies and future work. We recommend her extremely highly to anyone who wants to know about the city of Bologna. Victor and Agnes.

The best way to get your insider overview of Bologna!
Jun 2018 • Couples
Gabriele was a fantastic addition to our quick city trip to Bologna- a city to which we have never traveled. We needed an insiders approach and information for an in-front-of AND behind-the-scenes overview. Gabriele did not disappoint! He provided exactly what we requested and was a welcoming and pleasant local host to his city. We will definitely connect with him for a more in-depth program when we return!
