We had a really lovely tour the afternoon we arrived in Bologna. It was a great way to get an overview of the city center and find out what places we would like to come back to. It was all pretty close together, easy to walk everywhere and the friendly and knowledgeable guide was fantastic. She took her time, gave us some interesting history and facts, and seemed to enjoy what she does :)
