What are we going to do

In this Tour is offered the possibility to walk from the historical city center of Bologna to the famous church of San Luca passing through natural and adventurous paths. The trekking starts from Saragozza historical wall, here the walk starts under the longest arcades in the World up to the green hill of Villa Spada.
Here the real trekking begins!
You can literally feel to be embedded in the nature even if we are at 15 minutes’ walk from the historical center! Steep slopes alternate with more gentle paths to the top of the hill. This is the best perspective to appreciate the city from above and the church of San Luca from a different point of view! From here, a road that circumnavigates San Luca will slowly lead us to the famous spiritual center.
Fresh water and snacks will give you the time to appreciate the magic atmosphere of San Luca and will prepare You for the way back. From the top of the hill, 3.796 meters of arcades will accompany us to the starting point!
