Very nice small church.

Nice to go by the small train to the church, pitty that it is not always open, during the day between 13:00 and 15:00 closed, better to go then for lunch in the restaurant neerby.

Walking up to this church was a wonderful experience. After too many days of being inside churches and museums, we loved walking under the portico and enjoying the views. This is sheltered, so despite the heat and sun of Italy in July it was pleasant. There wasn't any English explanation of the altars or saints, but the chapel of the... More

The sanctuary is an average barocco church. What is really valuable is the walk under the longest porch in the world, the "Portico del Meloncello", leading from Porta Saragozza to the sanctuary whith its 666 arcades and 3,5 km (2 ml).

We did this trip twice and would have done it many more times if we had been closer to the start of the hike. The payoff of seeing the cathedral and the views of Bologna and the countryside to the north make the walk worthwhile. The walk officially begins at the Porta Saragozza and continues along the road for a... More

We walked all the way from the centre of town which took us over 1 1/2 hours so I would suggest you get the bus to the base of the hill which cuts out a good 2km. The walk up is all under cover which is good for the shade. Up the top, it's lovely and the buildings etc are... More

Amazing, strenuous walk uphill through 666 arches. The Basilica is beautiful as well as the the surrounding views.

This is a fairly tough climb up a series of concrete paths alternating with series of stone steps. It is possible to take the train either or both ways but the Basilica seems better after the climb

We caught the little train from the city up which was good fun. The cathedral itself is spectacular and the views good. We could have done with some nice benches looking over the city whilst waiting for the train, in the end we made do with a kerb.
