If you only have time for one tour in Bologna this is the one to choose. We were collected from our apartment in a modern minibus and met by our guide Massismo. We were on an English speaking tour and Massimo was fluent in speaking and understanding English. He was very knowledgeable about Bologna and we learnt much about the history of the area. We visited a Parmigano factory, a Modena ham factory, a Traditional Balsamic vinegar farm, the Ferrari Museum and finally a lunch in a good restaurant. All the food attractions were generous with their samples and wine and there was plenty of time to purchase the produce. The Ferrari Museum was fun for all ages. We were collected at about 8 am and arrived back at the apartment around 5.30 pm. We went on a Sunday and the restaurant was busy with Italian families which is a good sign of the quality and gave a good atmosphere. The food was very good and lots of it with a starter, 3 pasta courses, beef (cooked medium rare) with char-grilled vegetables and roasted potatoes and 2 desserts. Espresso, wine, and water were freely available. A memorable day.
