– Discover Bologna and Emilia-Romagna on foot –

Ciao! I’m Silvia, a native Bolognese, a freelance journalist and a licensed tour guide offering walking and hiking tours in and around Bologna.

I’m passionate about the outdoors and active travel and I enjoy leading visitors from around the world to discover authentic, curious and lesser-known aspects of my native region. I believe that walking is the best way to experience a place. My tours are in the hills, in the countryside and in the Apennine mountains. And since Bologna and Emilia-Romagna are foodie destinations, on my walks there will often be the chance to taste the local cuisine.

Check out the BLOG section for help planning your trip to the region and contact me to set up your preferred TOUR. I’m looking forward to showing you around!

We had a fantastic guided walking tour with Silvia during our stay in Bologna. The route took in some spectacular views of the city whilst contrasting with the natural beauty of the surrounding hills and countryside. Silvia was extremely knowledgeable and her English was perfect. Thank you for a special morning.

It was wonderful to share this beautiful and inspiring walk with someone like Silvia who clearly has a passion for her city and a love of walking and hiking. It was also great that we happened to do this walk on a Sunday morning along with hundreds of Bologna residents. My family and I would highly recommend Silvia as a guide and hopefully we’ll return to complete a longer hike with her.
