Know More about this tour

The tour starts under the two leaning towers Asinelli and Garisenda, where in the past the fish market took place. Continue to the Palace of Mercanzia (Merchandise), which preserves (along with gold tortellini and tagliatelle, symbols of the Bolognese gastronomic excellence) recipes of all major dishes of this city, from tortellini to lasagna, from friggione to the galantine.

The 'path of taste' will proceed to Via Caprarie, from which you will have access to the Quadrilateral, the navel of the city center, colorful and fragrant with old and new shops where you can taste local fruits and vegetables exposed on the shelves. A short stop in the Quadrilateral will allow you to have a local food tasting (Bologna ham will be just one of those), crescentine, Parmesan cheese and wine (tastings not included).

The visit will be concluded with the 'food of the Gods', a chocolate tasting at Majani workshop, founded in 1796.
