Conference Proceedings

Accompanying persons program


Were your wife, husband or friend wishing to join you on the trip, we offer a rich program with daily activities for all accompanying persons.


3 half days of guided sightseeing in and around the marvelous city of Bologna!

With sublime architecture, outstanding cuisine, and rich culture, Bologna should be at the top of your list if planning a visit to Italy.

Bologna has the following three nicknames: “la dotta” means “the learned one” and is a nod to the historic University of Bologna, “la grassa” means “the fat one” and refers to the area’s amazing cuisine and excellent gastronomy, and “la rossa” means “the red one,” which signifies the uniform red coloring of local buildings and their roofs, as well as the red of local motor vehicle manufacturers Ferrari and Ducati.

Day 1 - the Classical Bologna We’ll get to see the city from a cultural and artistic standpoint, with its cathedral and awe-inspiring churches, its vast squares surrounded by seemingly never-ending arcades and its characteristic markets.

Day 2 – the Bologna of towers For a different perspective, this tour will guide us through the history of the thousands-of-years-old city, with a special focus on its famous medieval towers.

Day 3 – when Bologna was a little Venice On this last morning tour we’ll see the most picturesque side of the city: its hidden canals with the old port, the historical shops and market and much more.

The Art of Italian and Bolognese Cuisine

On Friday morning all accompanying guests will have the chance to join in on a high-level cooking class, revealing the tips and tricks to one of Italy’s richest and finest regional cuisines.
