This Main Street is very beautiful. With marble on the ground. And the arches are beautiful too. It is a great walk.

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

Getting lost on this street is a pleasure. Lined with a wide variety of shops this via is a nice place for an evening stroll much Ike many other streets in Bologna.

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.
