About the tour

The beautiful city of Bologna is a showcase for the historical and culinary treasures of the region. Home to the oldest university in Europe, Bologna has long been a centre for academic and scientific learning, alongside a strong political history. Its moniker of 'The Red' is as much to do with its political learnings as its colourful buildings. This tour will delve into the rich history and culture of the city, with many opportunities to enjoy the wonderful cuisine and wine of the region.

This tour has been created for the West Kent Medico-Chirugical Society.
