Not much you can say, a beautiful building on a nice heel watching over the whole of Bologna. A real stunning view that we saw during a snowy day.

Depending on your fitness level, this can be a pretty tough walk. It is more than 3 km uphill, and pretty steep, but there are plenty of reasons to take a breather along the way to enjoy the views, if needed. I read that this...More

Walked to Santuario di Madonna di San Luca in a warm sunny August morning before the day became too warm. Recommend taking the Number 20 bus from the city centre (opposite Cathedral San Pietro) to the Meloncello Arch. Well worth the effort.

We started on this walk knowing it was through a long portico, but didn’t know it would be as great as it was! It’s a long walk, with more vertical gain than our morning ascending Torre degli Asinell! It was worth it once we arrived...More
