pic nic with locals in bologna



Walk, eat, drink and have fun on this unique adventure to the most famous Bolognese Hill. In just one afternoon we’ll take you on an epic journey through the longest porticos in the world, the stunning sanctuary of San Luca and the Way of the Gods

The sanctuary of San Luca is the icon of Bologna. Every Bolognese worthy of respect has to walk up there at least once in a lifetime! As you cannot lag behind in this matter, we offer you this unique walking tour. We’ll start from Porta Saragozza and we will walk along the longest portico in the world, all the way up to the enchanting Basilica of San Luca from where you can admire the stunning view of the town of Bologna. From there we will continue our walk taking the “Way of the Gods” route, an ancient road that connect Bologna to Florence. No worries, we will not walk all the way to Florence, only to the beautiful park of Chiusa or as we all call it, Parco Talon! Here we will be welcomed by a delicious pic-nic, we will toast with a refreshing glass of prosecco or Lambrusco to celebrate the end of our fatigue and savor freshly baked tigelle with the unmissable mortadella and many more delicacies.

Be a true local and come to walk with us this terrific road and eat our divine food which is not ambrosia but, modesty aside, it may be even better!

After the pic-nic you can catch a bus from outside the park that will take you back to the city centre. Price for bus ticket not included.

I had a fantastic experience on both the walk like locals & drink like locals tours- both of which I highly recommend! Gabriele was an excellent tour guide & I felt really spoilt as I had it all- history of the city, local experiences, visiting places I would never have found on my own, good company & many laughs! I ate so much good food on both- the stunning walk ended in a delightful picnic & I enjoyed some delicious appertivi on the drink like locals. Would definitely recommend these tours if you want some local experiences with passionate, warm & friendly guides! I will be signing up for more on my next trip to Bologna
