What to expect?

The taverns in Bologna have never been simply a place to eat, but have always played an essential role in the development of the political and cultural life of the city.

Until recent times, osterias were a point of reference for Bolognese artists and intellectuals, who would meet in front of a bottle of wine to discuss current affairs, politics and literature.

Although today there are far fewer of them, Bologna’s taverns retain that extraordinary atmosphere of conviviality that is hard to find elsewhere in the city, and that we would like you to experience first-hand during our tour.

During the tour you can visit two of the city's most famous osterie, where you have the chance to taste the typical Bolognese products and dishes over a good glass of wine.

This tour of Bologna's taverns can be customised to suit your needs.
