A symbol of the city nestled in the hills overlooking Bologna with its Baroque style.

It can be reached from Bologna city center by bus (no. 20-21) in about 15 min. will take you to the foot of the hill, from there you can choose whether to start the pilgrimage on foot or take a shuttle to get to the top. During the weekend the path is crowded by both believers from normal walkers. The porticoes makes it a place readily accessible in all seasons.

For the Bologneses is a very important and often made the ascent of the hill is the protagonist of florets in personal conversations popular: "If it is true I am going to San Luca walking"

And we would recommend the walk and more athletic recommend starting right from 'Hotel after a hearty breakfast. Once you reach the top after a walk of about 2 hours Vito's restaurant, which will allow you to regain your strength and why not enjoy your meal with local produce, as well as pizzas and salads.

For the more adventurous and for the trekkers we also suggest the path through the woods or a hike in Mountain biking on this route
