... San Lorenzo , we sat and took a breather and took in the workmanship of this splendid church , the view up here is amazing worth the climb and they do have a toilet up here and a vending machine to get a drink

Complesso Monumentale San Michele In Bosco
#8 of 206 Sights & Landmarks in Bologna
Located high over the city this little and lovely church rewards the visitor with one of the best panoramic view of Bologna.
Although everyone speaks of the walk to San Luca (which is beautiful in it's own right!), the views of Bologna from San Michele in Bosco are far, far better.
Basilica di San Domenico
#9 of 206 Sights & Landmarks in Bologna
Bologna , is truly beautiful and although there aren't as many sites to see the city has gems like the wonderful Basillica di San Domenico , make sure to visit when in Bologna
We also bought the €2 wrist band to allow to take photos and the €3 pp entrance to the Chapel of the Magi, This allowed us to take photos of the meridian unimpeded by rows of people trying to get a good view.

Certosa di Bologna
#10 of 206 Sights & Landmarks in Bologna
Many of the tombs and monuments in the cemetery date from the 19th Century, and the romantic view of death, spiritualism, and the like is obvious in the sculptures.
It's the most unique cemetery I've ever been in and one of the more unique sites I've visited in Italy, particularly after one has visited their 20th or 30th museum/church.
Teatro Anatomico
#11 of 206 Sights & Landmarks in Bologna
A highlight of the main sights of Bologna for anyone interested in academia, medicine, biology or history.
Entrance fee also allows you into Stabat Mater Hall and you can have a view of the library through the gated door.

Thrilling ascent and wonderful views as the pink-hued San Luca soars majestically, surrounded by green Apennine foothills with valleys and mountains in the distance and Bologna on the other side.
But so has been the history and today you can find an amazing site that is St Luke’s cathedral Surrounded by greenery on a hilltop overlooking Bologna- a must see if you are on Bologna Try a Sunday so you can comb...

Mast
#15 of 206 Sights & Landmarks in Bologna
The Mast is a 20-minute bus ride away from Piazza Maggiore in the heart of Bologna and the trip offers a view of the modern livable non-tourist parts of the city which is also a plus.
Cattedrale di San Pietro
#16 of 206 Sights & Landmarks in Bologna
the church itself is beautiful, and on a clear day it's absolutely worth a climb up the belltower, from where you can get a beautiful view of the city and surrounding mountains.
He was so interesting, showing us the roman foundations, early medieval and late medieval structures and had produced digital versions of the buildings on the site at each period.
Basilica di San Petronio
#17 of 206 Sights & Landmarks in Bologna
The huge interior of the church is worth seeing but the 3 Euro for going up to the top of the basilica gives excellent views of the other towers in Bologna and the surrounding hills, as well as a beautiful birds’...
this massive basilica houses wonderful works of art, the longest meridian marking, and a wonderful place at the rear where you can view the city.

Basilica di Santa Maria dei Servi Bologna
#19 of 206 Sights & Landmarks in Bologna
I have visited many historic religious sites in Bologna but this was one which Inshall remember for its simplicity and sense of quietude.
Many other works are noteworthy; but I believe that what I wrote is enough to understand that into the beautiful Bologna, Santa Maria dei Servi is a site to behold.

Coffee breaks are good opportunity to chat with other students, and there is a great programme of inexpensive excursions around town and to nearby sites which you can join as you wish.
