The spectacular Cathedral of San Pietro, the seat of the Archbishop of Bologna, is a must-visit while in town along with the Basilica of San Petronio. It is conveniently located on one of the main streets Via dell'Independenza close to Piazza Maggiore. The not-so-stunning exterior...More

It was great to just stand in the middle of the work of hundreds of people and 'be in the moment'. The Organist got really mad at the piece of paper while he was playing. I think we all had a real laugh!

It was nice to visit because it was much quieter than the other churches in the city and no crowds. Interesting artwork.

This monumental church on the main street of Bologna provides a haven of tranquillity in the heart of a busy city. It also provides much for those interested in Baroque architecture which hides it's earlier history (finished in 1184).

San Pietro has so much to offer, so take the time to see as much as possible. The art work on the floor includes marble in unusual colors with intricate designs. On Saturdays only the cripts are available for exploration, as is the tower. Leave...More
