A tranquil heaven just 30 mins drive from Bologna town, we were welcomed by the nature-spring scents and forest green view of this mountain area. If you like hiking, park the car away in the wooded parking areas and take a walk uphill to reach the Church which is located at the top of the Mt. Formiche. Very quiet area, with benches you can use for a quiet meditation, reading, picnic or excellent view. In the church compound, we were amazed to find drinking water available through out for visitors.

The Catholic sanctuary to Mary at the summit of Monte delle Formiche is visible from miles due to its prominent tower and church. The drive to the summit is beautiful, with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and villages. We visited in May, so we did not see the annual migration of winged ants that occurs in September.
