Santuario di San Luca, Bologna

36 Via di San Luca
Italy 40135
Tel: 39 051 614 2339's insider take:

A Bolognese landmark with breathtaking views, the sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca sits atop a hill two miles from the city center. Once a year, locals make the pilgrimage there to worship a Byzantine icon of the Virgin during Ascension. Nearly two and a half miles of walkway (consisting of 660 porticos) link the shrine with town and provide a shelter for the procession, which has occurred every year since 1433. Energetic visitors and joggers also make the trek on a daily basis. The path is covered all the way, so it can be done rain or shine.
