What to expect

Visit the seven churches of the Basilica of Santo Stefano and, together with your guide, discover more about their mysterious origin. While some claim that it was built in 430AD to represent the places where the Passion of Christ had taken place, others believe it was commissioned by St. Petronius and that it was built over the ruins of a pagan temple.

Explore the Churches of the Crucifix, the Calvary and the Saints Vitale and Agricola. Stroll through Pilate's courtyard, remarkable for its marble base. Be sure to take note of the vast amount of paintings, sculptures and other works of art that adorn the walls.

At the end of your visit, relax tasting local delicacies such as mortadella (Italian sausage), accompanied by wines from the Emilia-Romagna region.
