Wonderful trip up to san luca / fantastically beautiful church and the surroundings ❤️ / I'm glad we took the little train / because it just goes up / and then in the heat. Good idea and go up there around 10 am or a little later / because the church closes early / siesta ❤️And the 2 cutest guides. Can only be recommended

Great way to begin our time in Bologna. Although we could have walked to the Basilica, the narration along the drive was terrific. The hike is also quite steep in parts. The vouchers for food were perfect and could be used any day. Definitely recommend!

On time, they welcomed me a few minutes earlier in front of the entrance of the Asinelli tower, they explained icons to me the visit was taking place, the possibility of listening to an audio guide, they gave me a voucer with my printed tickets. Ottomo

Great tour! Felt little bit like a escape room, just in the city. Very sweet story and nice quests! Would definitely do it again! xoxo

Beautiful and rewarding tour. Staff available and prepared. Well done!!! Until next time ... ‍♂️
