Tour program

Starting along the modern district of Manifattura delle Arti, nowadays the hi-tech and cultural centre of the city, you’ll be guided through the story of the Medieval port of Bologna and the historical relevance of the water canals which were part of the city and are now underground. You’ll reach the Prendiparte Tower, an elegant and well preserved tower which will lead you back in history. You’ll discover the importance of the Jewish community passing through the old Jewish “Ghetto” and reaching the main symbol of Bologna: The 2 Towers.

Cycling surrounded by the beautiful “Portici” of the city you’ll reach Bologna’s impressive main square, Piazza Maggiore, where you’ll admire some of the most important buildings in Bologna: palazzo d'Accursio, the amazing Cathedral of S.Petronio, the fountain of the Neptune and the majestic palace of King Enzo. You’ll discover the Archiginnasio, first seat of the University of Bologna, the oldest one in the western world.

The tour will move towards the Church of S.Domenico, built to preserve the saint’s remains and seat of the masterpiece by sculptors Nicola Pisano, Niccolò dell'Arca and a very young Michelangelo. You’ll discover hidden squares and ancient suburbs, thus reaching in awe the extraordinary Piazza S.Stefano with its Church, whose origins go back to the birth of Christianity.

Your tour will finish in “Via Piella”; one of the few points in the city where the water canals that nourished the mills and gave energy to the medieval city of Bologna, are still visible.
