Bologna Food Tour from a local perspective

296 reviews
Bologna is home to one of the best cuisines in Italy—where favorites like tortellini and were created—but it can be a challenge for travelers to find down-to-earth meals in the restaurant circuit.  With this tour, a guide takes you to at least half a dozen restaurants and cafes serving dishes away from the tourists. It’s an immersion in local gastronomy with pasta, salumi, pizza, wine, and gelato.

If music is your thing this is a must see ... 10 rooms of fascinating historic items all fro a single collection. Allow 60 - 90 minutes.

I loved this museum. It was fantastic! And I spent over two hours. I am not a classical music lover, or should I say wasn't. I now want to explore this whole genre and the history so much more thoroughly. But I think you must, must, must take the audio. The labelling is all in Italian, although there are some room plans that give explanations in English, but the audio guide was well worth the euro4. Not only did the audio guide give explanations, it also provided examples of the music. I highly recommend a visit to this museum, but you do need time, not only to listen but also to absorb, there is a lot of information.

This is a small museum, just 9 rooms, but very rich. There are a lot of period instruments, manuscripts - Barber of Sevilla - and there is the pianino of Rossini too. For music lover it is a must.

This museum was the highlight of our visit to Bologna, and we probably spent more than two hours here. Although the museum is not large, there is a huge collection of manuscripts, period instruments and portraits. Most of the exhibits are from the collection of Giovanni Battista Martini, a friar, music theorist and teacher with famous students like JC Bach, Mozart and Gluck. It would be best to get audio guides to understand more about the exhibits in this museum.

The museum has a nice collection of historical instruments. Also learned the history of music in Bologna. We got one audio guide to share - which didn't work out so well.
