The Basilica of San Luca is one of the symbols of the city of Bologna.

At the meeting point you will receive from a member of our staff a map and a table with the timetables of the return train, available every 45 minutes.

This tour departs every day and will help you discover the city aboard the San Luca Express, on which audio guides, available in 10 languages, will tell you the history of the city until your arrival at the Basilica of San Luca.

You will have the opportunity to visit this sacred and very important place for the city of Bologna and you can decide what time to return by consulting the timetables on the map. On board you will find staff who will welcome you and answer your questions.

On your return you can taste the specialties of Bologna with 2 typical tastings, in the welcoming setting of the historic market.



What to expect

San Luca, a suggestive and breathtaking basilica, dominates the city of Bologna and its marvelous and green hills: by going up with the train you can admire both the city and the hills, and then arrive at the church, of which you can admire the suggestive interior, magnificently decorated.

One of our staff will accompany you to the departure point of the San Luca Express, helping you with check-in and handing you the vouchers for the two tastings that await you in the city at the end of your tour.

The food vouchers were AMAZING and it forced you to walk around the city, which was nice. And the train was lovely!

This was a great way to start our visit to Bologna! The guide met us with our packet of information at the arranged time and made sure we found the train. She answered a few questions, gave us tips on the tasting experience and was on her way. The rest was self-guided, but that was perfect. ...

Lo staff era molto disponibile e il viaggio sul trenino è stato molto bello. Siamo scesi dalla Basilica a piedi e poi abbiamo ripreso il trenino per tornare in Piazza Maggiore. La giornata era perfetta per il tour.
