Enrich what commonly would be a simple (and probably boring) transfer with a sightseeing tour and a great food experience! Travel from Venice to Florence (or viceversa) enjoying a stop in Bologna, one of most enchanting north Italian cities, and visiting a Parmigiano cheese factory for a delicious food experience!

It's time to head up to Florence with your Private English-speaking and knowledgeable Driver!
Reach independently (please, see the NOTES section below*** ) the Venice Car Terminal in Piazzale Roma square. Once here, meet your private driver and travel southbound on the road. Today you will enrich what commonly would be a simple (and probably boring) transfer with a sightseeing tour and a great food experience!

After crossing the southern border of Venice area and entering the Emilia Romagna region, you will take advantage of the ride and pay a visit to one of most important and charming cities in Italy: Bologna.
Bologna, the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, other than being (as all Italians say) a sort of paradise for all gourmets and foodies, is full in art and history. 

The highlights of the medieval shape, enchanting city center of Bologna include the Basilica of St. Petronius, the two Towers (Torre degli Asinelli and Torre Garisenda, whose iconic leaning forms provide a popular symbol of the town) and a net of beautiful streets with shops and arcades (there are some 24 miles of porticoes in the city's historical centre!). Try in a typical wine shop some slices of "mortadella" typical ham and a glass of Lambrusco, the most famous local production. 

Your journey will continue with a stop at one of the marvelous cheese factory located in Bologna surroundings, where you will have the opportunity to see how one of most famous and world-celebrated cheese is produced: the Parmigiano Reggiano!
Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese derives from an admirable synthesis of special milk, heat, cheese making craftsmanship and long natural aging. The rounded forms, 20-24 cm in height and approximately 40 cm in diameter weigh an average of 37 kg. With its sharp flavour, it is quite nutritional and has a high biological value.
A tasting of different ages of Parmigiano will be had - of course - together with a quick visit of the factory.

Continuing your ride, in less than 1 hour and a half you will be in Florence.
Drop off at your address in the late afternoon, at the end of this unforgettable day.

NOTES:
The pick up will take place in Piazzale Roma square, that's the Venice Car Terminal.
