Car and Driver needed for Bologna and surrounds

Hey you super-duper informed folks. I need to arrange for a car and driver to shuttle some fellow chefs around Emilia Romangna, based in Bologna, next week. I have lots of contacts for drivers in Rome and Tuscany, but know nothing of Bologna. Thanks so much!

I suspect your hotel will have some good leads.

Hi f,

Won't your Tuscan drivers be able to handle Bologna?

This is by no means a recommendation --I've never used any of them -- but here is a link to a page on the Bologna Tourist Office Web site that mentions two or three firms that rent cars with drivers; also busses with drivers, depending how many of your "fellow chefs" there are...

Thanks folks, and that link is great, Eloise. I wasn't sure if I should advise my friends to even try a driver based out of, say, Florence. This group of folks is traveling throughout Emilia Romagna, researching food and dining, for a week, and they have been in a quandry trying to figure out the best way to do it.

You all are great! Any more leads will be greatly appreciated!

CHEFS! Be sure to take the www.parmagolosa.it tour of the cheese, vinegar, ham concerns. Wonderful. We drove ourselves and followed the guide who was very familiar with the food processes. We visited "traditional" concerns. The cheese maker can only make 10 wheels each day, the vinegar concern was a "family" run place. This is worth your time if you like fine foods!!
