“Many chapels and churches”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

In a smallish area. After a while the frescoes and paintings start resembling each other. Lack of signs explaining the stories of the buildings does not add to the value of the visit.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

This was a lovely find for us. Just wandering this lovely city. Part of it is almost Esher like. Can be a little busy but still, very special.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

The church is fantastic and the square in front of it is a must see.We had lunch in the square and enjoyed people watching.the kids were a treat to see as they really knew how to made full use of the area. The inside of this very old church is mystical .

“A delightful corner of Bologna”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We loved going to Santo Stefano. It was our favorite area of the city. Once a month, there was an antiques fair there. That was special, in itself. But, the architecture is so beautiful and the environment, so inviting and serene, that it is worth a visit at any time.

“Peace and tranquillity”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

A nest of churches - all beautiful. I visited during a service and the plain chant was so evocative. Also moving was the air force chapel. All the bustle of the city was cut out. If you only have time to visit one place, this is the one.
