Great place to eat, drink and shop. Bologna is the place for food and you can see why! The Market is great and well worth a look around. There is also an indoor market with lots of eateries and stalls. Great food/wine!

I love market areas and this one is interesting. Plenty of fresh food, interest stores and narrow alleys. Photo and people watching opportunities. Many beggars which take the edge off a bit. About 20 minutes or so walk from the station.

This is the old market section of the. It’s where everyone comes to shop for the freshest ingredients for their gastronomic needs. Wonderful to spend an hour browsing from store to store, all these pastas and charcuterie are so tempting!
