Full day tour

The morning itinerary is the same as the 'Don't miss out on Bologna' tour. In the afternoon, the visit continues to the univeristy district and the palaces from the XVth and XVIth centuries along Via Zamboni.

On our trip you will notice many of our beautiful arcades, and the SAN JAMES CHURCH boasts one of the most elegant in the city-- Renaissance in style, supported by fine columns and decorated with a rich sculpted frieze.Hidden at the end of the 'portico' is one of our lovely churches, with the most important Renaissance fresco cycle in Bologna: SAINT CECILY ORATORY. These decorated works will enwrap you in the history of Saint Cecily, patroness of musicians...

Next, we will discuss music by Mozart, Rossini, Gluck, Wagner, Farinelli and Father Martini and their importance in Bologna as we walk from the **THEATRE COMUNALE to the Music academy and the world famous music museum (only outside) We will be at lost for words as we come upon **CASA ISOLANI, one of the oldest houses along this portico, and following its private courtyard we will be led to SANTO STEFANO SQUARE and CHURCH.

The place is definitely magical, and has been a sanctuary for the citizens here since the Vth century. This very old abbey is constructed of churches and chapels linked together inside a beautiful Romanesque Benidictine Monastery. A XI° century crypt, the centrally planned Church, the copy of the Holy Sepulchre and the cloister of Pilatus are some of the most important elements in this abbey.

But other hidden spots, such as the second Cloister with its double arched loggia, are suggestive silent places in the heart of Bologna.
