Only a few stops on the bus, to get there and only about 20 minutes to walk back to the centre. We spend a pleasant evening walking the paths up the hill, indulging in ripe figs from the trees as we walked and watched the sun set.

Enjoyed half an hour jogging up the hills and admiring the city views. Very quiet. We went in winter so the trees were bare but I can imagine they look lovely in spring and summer.

The park is worth a visit. It is a large park on the hills. You can walk to "Parco di Villa Ghigi". The view of the city is amazing. However, the Villa Ghigi is nothing special. We were at midday but there were few people. Mostly local citizans who walked their dogs. Friendly athmosphere.

I'm really surprised there are not many pictures of this beautiful place in here! You'll have to trust my judgement-the place is a must go. I personally love outdoors and hills and fields so exploring this park was perfect. You can see the whole city of Bologna from the top of the hill, as well as some adjacent city on your other hand. The park is something more of a natural reserve, I was told it's easy to encounter deer or some other animals there. Lots of people with dogs there, but really secluded if you go higher up. The smell is amazing, flowers are all around, it's the oasis really

You can access this park either by walking up via San Mamolo, or for a circular walk take the via dell'Osservanza which is an early turn off on the right. Keep walking up the hill until you come to the end of the road. Just before the end on your left you will see a red and white path marker to the Park. take this and it brings you to the top end of the park. You can then walk along many of the paths to get to the via San Mamolo and back to Bolgogna. If you arent sure which path to take, follow the line of the river on your left. The park is quieter and more unspoiled than the city ones. Take water if its hot.
