    Mattia brought an energy to the tour coupled with real local knowledge. Born and raised in Bologna, he knows the city, its culture and its food. The tour started and ended on time and was well organized. The group was 12 people which was workable, but at times hard when we were all in a small shop. Would definitely recommend as a great way to explore the city.

    Jason was an awesome guide! He is very knowledgeable about the history of Bologna and the food. He took us around town and explained the sites as well as letting us taste the amazing food. I would definitely recommend Jason’s tour.

    Miriam hosted us on a food tour through Bologna on May 29. She was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable about what we were trying. She was also very personable and ensured conversation was easy among the group. We enjoyed the tour very much!

    Had an incredible tour today with Mattia being our amazing guide. He came with so much knowledge about Bologna and the food here. He was also gracious enough to give us some recommendations for the rest of our trip. Highly recommend!

    This was a little scary because we put our kids in a car with a stranger, but it was the dream of my son to ride in a Lambo. Both the 7 and 10 year old loved it. They only got up to 140 KPH-ish because they drive on the highway, but it was a convertible so the kids thought it was a lot faster. 10 minutes is about 120 USD. Very professional staff. The factory was closed when we were there, but it was still worth it.

    We loved our private tour! We were picked up in Bologna and taken to the Parma Factory and then taken to the Prosciutto Factory! Both were great. Very interesting and we had some delicious samples at the end of our tours! We were then taken to a lovely restaurant with amazing views for lunch. Again delicious! Fabulous food and wine. We were then returned to our hotel in Bologna. Our guide was fantastic and very informative and patient with our group! It was a great day and we would definitely recommend this tour!

    We didn't end up going on this tour as Frederico was too busy and said shops would be closed on Sunday. So not sure why he would offer the tour on a Sunday. I asked for a refund and he said he would so no problems. However it did not come after a week so I asked him to check it. In the meantime we discovered he did a cooking class. We decided to go and at the same time try and sort out the refund. The cooking class was ok and Frederico was a good host. But unfortunately the pasta is just bland and as Frederico said himself the food in Bologna is overrated. We did get a couple of tips. But too be frank, like most things in Bologna his class was extremely expensive. We eventually got the refund so not sure why it didn't work the first time. We ended up paying for his class on PayPal, they take a massive cut so if you can pay by cash do so. Overall the class was a nice experience.

    Extremely informative tour of the historical center of Bologna. Good balance of history, culture and food. The passion of Ricardo for his city, art, architecture and its rich history came through. The pride and quality was evident. Good way to hit highlights of Bologna and to learn about its authentic food.

    What an incredible tour!

    Every stop was outstanding especially the host for the Moderna balsamic vinegar at his estate. The lunch served here was over the top FANTASTIC! The risotto with a drop of 25 year old balsamic vinegar left us speechless. Homemade lemoncello and walnut liqueur to wrap up the visit. WOW is all we could say on the drive back to Bologna.

    The process for making the parmesan reggiano was amazing and so informative too. Our host knew the business very well and explained it so easy to follow and understand. All in all a great excursion. Just wish we could've had more time to order something.

    The reason for the 4 stars was that our driver was overly pushy at the farm where the cheese is made and rushed us to wrap it up so could go to the next stop. Very rude while we were in the middle of the cheese tasting. We didn't feel that we had any time to shop in the store or order any of the cheeses since he pulled the van around and did everything just short of honking the horn. Then in the van he was constantly on his phone and using the radio speaker since it was hands free so very loud.

    If possible, I'd like to find the contact information for the farm making the cheese so we could order some.

I have a few questions about baggage storage at Bologna Centrale Train Station:

1. Can you store a large suitcase?
2. How many days you can store your luggage?
3. What is the cost for storing your luggage?
4. Where is the luggage storage located?

Thank you.
Answer: Hi, this is the only left luggage facility inside the Bologna station:
"Deposito KiPoint Bologna Centrale"
The location within the station is "Piazzale Ovest" (West Yard). However follow the pictograms.
There are no luggage lockers, so I'm not aware of size limits. I'm not even aware of time limits.
The cost seems 14 euros for 24 hours and for each luggage. Anyway, please check here:
