Incredible place, it’s like you’re in a deserted city. Long walk (45 to 60 minutes), since it’s a bit far from the city centre. On foot, walk via the porticos starting from Porta Saragozza. Not to be missed: Lucia Dalla’s tomb.

This is a huge area and there are so many monuments and headstones to discover. The statues, monuments and artwork are what I loved the most. So much to photograph.

This vast burial ground is generally known simply as “Certosa di Bologna,” the “Charterhouse of Bologna,” I suppose because it grew from the grounds of a monastery. Getting off the bus and crossing M. K. Ghandi, a boulevard six lanes wide, the first thing I...More

Spend some time here and see sculpture at its very best . Not your ordinary tourist attraction, just the most unique you can possibly imagine. Been here many times and will return over and over. Always something new to happen on
