Lovli Local Linda

Hi, I am Linda, Tour Guide in Bologna. I’m passionate about history of art, cycling, and meet people from different nationalities. My Motto: You have to start somewhere!


What makes you a lovely Lovli Local?

I always fell in love with every single place I see, but expecially, my mission is to promote my land, Emilia-Romagna. With the purpose of transmit to travellers my passion for historic, artistic, and cultural heritage, I took the Tour Guide and Tour Leader official license. Now I can finally join an exciting activity full of incentives, that permit me to combine my passion for learning new things with my natural skills for public relations.

What makes your tours different to others?

Bologna Cycling Tour permit to a first-time visitor to have a sightseen of the whole city in a few hours! I am a passionate Loveli Local but I am also a professional and licensed Tour Guide.

What do you like most/least about your city?

I love the gastronomic tradition of Bologna and Bolognese spirit of welcome. I dislike Bolognese people say that Bologna is not a good place for a tourist :)

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I am in love with South America. I read many books on and I am always planning to travel in, but unfortunately I have still not had the possibility to go

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?


What’s your favorite smell?

The unique smell of typical Bolognese osterias.
