Excursions in Bologna: San Luca the hills
What gives it that alluring charm in Bologna over the arcades is the presence of the hills that can accommodate many excursions rich in flavor and culture. One of the most interesting points, which can be seen from the city center, it's definitely San Luca sanctuary located on top of Guardia hill overlooking the whole fabric of Bologna and symbol of the city because of its location and the cult of the Blessed Virgin of San Luca that has always played a role important to Bologna.
To achieve this there are various routes that can be carried calmly and admiring the beauty of the city and the surrounding area (for those who did not love hiking is also a transport service to the Sanctuary).
To receive more information about the excursion ask the multi-lingual personnel at the Hotel San Donato and visit the official site of the Sanctuary of San Luca!
