Great exercise and great views
May 2021
Well awesome adventure! Walk up the portico on your way to the top for a great workout. Amazing sites on the way up, you can see the nearby stadium. Once you get to the top, get the great panoramic views of the surrounding areas. Go inside and take in the lovely views. A must do and see when in town. A key staple church with lots of history

Very beautiful church in a very beautiful place

The building is stunning and the interior is also very beautiful. I'm not catholic but you can still appreciate the beauty of the church, I would say.

Colorful place worth visiting
Sep 2020
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!

the highlight was the portico
Oct 2020
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

Loved to climb the hill to arrive at the Sanctuary
Oct 2020
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.

It's a long walk up for nothing special.
Oct 2020 • Solo
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.

Beautiful- worth the walk!

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).

Worth the walk
Aug 2020 • Couples
If possible chose a colder day to do this walk as it isn’t small or easy! Leave time to do the walk as the hill won’t need rushing. The views and the church are 100% worth the walk and it’s absolutely breathtaking inside.

Go to the top, it's worth it
Aug 2019
A visit to this church shouldn't be missed if you visit Bologna. Ideally, you should go by foot (or jog your way to the top, like so many locals do) - that way you'll also experience another great sight of Bologna, the Portico di San Luca.
Entrance to the top is charged, but my experience of the place wouldn't have been complete had I missed this climb. The view of the city and the Colli Bolognesi is irreplaceable.
