Green tour

Bologna Hills Soft Trekking

From Piazza Maggiore, we will hike the hills just beyond the city walls, through the Villa Spada garden, under the spell of panoramas and views of Bologna's historic centre. We will reach the sanctuary of the Madonna of San Luca, an ancient place of worship and a city's landmark, visible from far away in all directions. The long porticoed path is of unique beauty as the hills that surround it. A guided hiking of considerable charm, which is an invitation to discover and appreciate the hilly side of the Bologna area, an integral part of the city, rich in nature, history and art.
