Another beautiful church including massive columns, painted ceiling, simple and ornate side chapels with a stunning altarpiece.

Again, you always have many religious buildings to see in most Italian cities but this is a splendid example and worth a visit.

We just popped in to this dazzling cathedral as we were ambling down Via Dell'Indipendenza on a Saturday afternoon and so glad we did. A beautiful church with wonderful light and many items of interest. A real gem.

Walked up the bell tower...not as arduous as some as it's circular in places and the steps are long and shallow. But there are steps, lots of them but it's rewarded with a great view over the red city!

Don't let the €5 price and daunting climb stop you! The view from the top is amazing! Perfect location in the old town to see all the beautiful sights in Bologna from above! Totally worth the cost and the extra exercise!

Bell tower worth a climb -views great. Crypts also interesting. Both included in the price but bell tower limited opening - watch out for sign out front of church indicating day and times. 5 euro entry.

The poor review is based on the actions of the man dealing with entry. Unconvinced about paying the 5 euro entry fee, we were tempted by this man with the promise of catacombs. My mum, who had been to Bologna before, was very surprised by...More

In the middle of the city close to the public market suddenly you can see perfect historical building.It 's better decorated than San Petronio one of the famous cathedral in the Bologna.
