We behaved like tourists and went up to this Sanctuary on the 'little train' from Piazza S. Maggiore, but walked back down to the city in the 'portico' passage. Good views from the dome, and walking down back to the city was fun, if a little tiring by the end.

I highly recommend walking up to the Santuario di Madonna di San Luca! From the centre of town, the walk is 4km long through the world's longest portico, and includes quite a bit of climbing and stairs in the second half of the walk. But the view from the top is worth it! (Plus it's a nice little workout.) You get a view down into the city of Bologna on one side, and towards the hills leading to Florence on the other. The church itself is also beautiful inside. I recommend walking a bit further down the road (on the hills side), just 200m or so, and then you can turn around and get an excellent view of the entire church on the hill.

666 arches leading up to the Santuario , and you can walk up, take the San Lica train from Piazza Maggiore or even cheaper is to taxi up! It’s not that spectacular inside and exterior also needs a paintjob, but it is something you have to see whilst in Bologna. Pity you can’t walk around the grounds.... and take pics from all sides. Then walk to 3.5kms down which was pretty easy. Lots of people around! Nice atmosphere. Free entry

Great walk with tremendous view, from the city center to the outskirts. Melancholy and rest. Worth seeing and being there!
