Bologna Guide Italy



Bologna is definitely one of the Italian meccas for shopping, an enormous outdoor shopping center which is home to the leading designer boutiques as well as design and furniture shops, and many book stores, antique shops and art galleries.

The so-called "quadrilatero" - an area enclosed by Via Rizzoli, Via D'Azeglio, Via Farini and Via Castiglione - reveals the most elegant nature of Bologna, which reaches its peak in Galleria Cavour where the most famous designers are located.
Via Indipendenza is another golden mile of shopping, decidedly the most popular in Bologna. There are tons of shops, with a wide range of goods and affordable for everyone. If you are looking for a more original and refined style, the right address is Via San Vitale. If Via dell'Archiginnasio, which flanks Piazza Maggiore, is famous for jewelry, Strada Maggiore, Corte Isolani and Via S. Stefano are good streets for antiques and furniture.

To take a plunge into Bologna's gourmet scene head for the so-called Mercato di Mezzo, a characteristic area located between Via Drapperie, Via Clavature and the surrounding side streets. Here you'll find the city's best gourmet shops, which display foodstuffs as if they were gems. The prices are a bit on the high side but the quality is guaranteed. The more popular Mercato delle Erbe, a covered markets with all kinds of stalls, is located in the central Via Ugo Bassi. A large clothing market including a nice section with used and vintage clothing, is held every Friday and Saturday in Piazza 8 Agosto. For antiques and bric-ŕ-brac there are markets in Piazza 8 Agosto every Thursday and in Piazza S. Stefano every second weekend of the month.
