Fall in love with beloved Bologna
Ride to Bologna’s most romantic historical and cultural sites on the Romantic Bologna Tandem Bike Tour! Whether you’re lovers wanting to live it up in bella Italia, or friends seeking a bit of escapism, this guided day tour takes you on a tour of Voltone del Podestà, Palazzo Re Enzo, the Fountain of Neptune, Corte Galluzzi, Corte Isolani, Torre degli Asinelli, and San Vitale, finishing with a classy cocktail overlooking the Moline Canal.
Pedaling first to Voltone del Podestà, uncover one of the seven secrets of Bologna, the ‘Mayor’s Vault’, ensconced beneath Piazza Maggione. Experience the intriguing sound game of Bologna’s ‘wireless telephone’, speaking to your companion from one corner of the vault to the other! You’ll pedal on to Palazzo Re Enzo, the splendid palace in the historical heart of Bologna. Weave your tandem bike between the picturesque porticoes of this sensational square and soak up the grand atmosphere of the palace.
Your day tour takes you on to Fontana del Nettuno, a colossal city fountain in the Piazza del Nettuno. This fascinating fountain features a large-scale bronze figure of Neptune, Roman god of water and seas, fixed in place in 1566. Carrying on to Corte Galluzzi, park your bicycle up in the shadow of the gargantuan Tore Galluzzi. Just nearby is Corte Isolani, a captivating covered walkway on wooden stilts.
Your tandem bike tour continues to Torre degli Asinelli, the two medieval towers dominating the beautiful Bologna skyline. The Two Towers are landmarks of the city, comprising the taller ‘Asinelli’, and the smaller, slightly leaning ‘Garisenda’, named after the families thought to have built them between 1109 and 1119. Cycle on to San Vitale, the elegant, sophisticated stretches of the city between the Two Towers and Piazza Aldrovandi, boasting beautiful porticoes and charming churches.
Your romantic tandem bike tour finishes with a flourish, as you enjoy a sublime cocktail in the heart of beautiful Bologna.
