From Bologna FS station take Via Indipendenza and go to Piazza Maggiore, the starting point (or arrival) of Via degli Dei. Go on to via Saragozza and walk under the longest arcade which arrives to the Santuario della beata Vergine di San Luca. The arcade was built in 1674. It is long 3800 m and it is formed by 666 arcs, 3,6 Km of length. When you arrive at the San Luca's Church behave as a true Bologna citizen and ask for a "grace"! Then walk for 200 m on the street car and take the CAI track on the right side called "Via de' Brègoli" number 112A. This way will take you to Parco Talon in Casalecchio di Reno. On the way you will see two crossing streets. After Parco Talon you can continue to walk near the river Reno. Here you will see written signals about Via degli Dei and CAI track 112. Go on walking to Sasso Marconi. Before arriving here you will get to Oasi Naturalistica di San Gherardo, on your right side. It come from a cave near Palazzo de' Rossi and today it is a natural and protected area for animals and plants. Here you can do birdwatching, trekking and nordic walking (but only by appointment).
