  • The Basilica of San Francesco in Piazza San Francesco, is one of the most beautiful monuments to visit Bologna. Majestic in its Gothic style, the basilica is beautiful in its façade, but also on the back, which opens onto Piazza Malpighi, where you can see the tombs of the glossators. For people who spend in town, well worth a visit!

  • This historically important 13th century Franciscan church looks quite spectacular spectaucal from the outside, but also merits a visit. The buriel chapels on the grounds make the church stand out.
  • Rather simple but still beautiful church. Nice stained glass windows.
  • A place of worship
  • Beautiful.
  • The Basilica is lovely and the homonymous piazza San Francesco is one of the nicest in Bologna! Despite the last posts of street furniture have definitely slipped in my opinion, because I think are misplaced and away from any aesthetic Canon, especially if dropped in the context of the place. In any case a place to visit.
