The central shopping street is full of shops and cafes. On Saturdays and Sundays it closes for transportation and becomes completely pedestrian, but there are many people

A very busy street but if you go on a weekend they seal of the traffic and it changes everything, it is just lovely. Restaurants put tables on the street and people are walking leisurely around doing their shopping.

Via dell'Indipendenza is a street between railway station and Piazza Maggiore in Bologna. It has covered arcades on each side. Houses have shops, bars, even some churches on each side. Main part of it is pedestrian zone during weekend.

Good for shopping, lounging in cafes and eating in restaurants. The usual shopping street but Christmas lights were very tastefully designed like curtains on stage.

Big shopping street, with lots of shops you find in every big city. Nothing special. It is better to go to the smaller Streets with unique shops and boutiques.

This is the main shopping street in Bologna. The traffic was cut off at the weekend, not sure if it was just for Christmas or they do it every weekend. Plenty of shops, usual suspects H&M Zara etc and a few others. There is a...More
