Meeting with a private licensed tour guide in Bologna for a tour dedicated to the historic local musical tradition (Bologna is a UNESCO creative city of music) and to the great musicians, composers and singers who lived, studied and worked there: from Father Martini to Mozart and Farinelli, from Rossini to Verdi up to Toscanini. Your walking tour includes a visit to the oratory of San Colombano, an ancient monastery founded in VII century by the monks of Bobbio. The church, now deconsecrated, houses the prestigious Tagliavini Collection of ancient musical instruments. Then on to your climbing to the bell towers of San Pietro Cathedral with beautiful aerial views of the city, access to its belfry and explanation of the “double Bolognese concert”. Your tour might include a short visit to the Rossiniano Stabat Mater Hall and / or to the ancient organ of San Petronio Basilica. A visit to the Municipal Theater will be your last stop; it was built by Antonio Galli from Bibbiena on the site itself where the ancient palace of the Bentivoglios, the lords of the city, stood.
