Very impressive place, verycolorful and worth visiting. I guess the best way to get there is on foot... but it goes up... and up... and up! There is a parking area on the top (drive up to teh santuario and then continue you way for 5 minutes it will be on the right hand side), but it is pretty small and I bett on crowded days you won't find a parking spot!

I am gettin gold and felt the walk up to the Sanctury would be too much so we got a taxi.and though we would get one back. Unfortunately the cafe and shop were closed We tried to call a taxi and failed. Our hotel also failed to get a taxi- there was a demonstration in Bologna- so no taxis around.It seemed like a long way down ( nearly 4 kilometres) when you are not prepared

Getting there by foot is a great experience. It is an almost 4 km walk from Porta Saragozza. Less than half is flat but the rest is steep, so bring good walking shoes. Some people go up hill for exercise, but other people go as a pilgrimage. For me it is a 45-60 min walk each way. So take your time. There is a train that takes you from Piazza Maggiore to the Santuario, if you are not into walking. The Sanctuary is nice. Besides the Madonna de San Luca there is a Virgen de Guadalupe. I go there at least once every time I visit Bologna. For me it is worthwhile.

Not being religious and I admit finding religious buildings a bit overrated, I was most interested in the walk through the extensive (660) porticos that wind up the hill to the basilica. Clearly a lot of keep fit Bolognese also enjoy the challenge of the climb. At the top the view of the city is pretty dull to be honest and the basilica nothing special. Having said I'm not a fan of religious buildings I have visited them all over the world - a masochist I guess - and this is very average.

Keep going- my only advice. A wonderful view, and the sky view is a must. The ticket price also includes the crypt, and church (€5).
