We were having a ramble round Bologna and thought the park of Otto Agosto looked interesting. The square itself is nothing - apparently the market these days is largely Chinese imports, although it wasn't on when we visited. The park doesn't feel very safe -...More

Not sure who would enjoy this market. It looked interesting from a distance and once amongst the stalls, which seem quite close together, it was a long fruitless search for something worth buying. Cheapness seemed to be the common factor and the smell of marijuana...More

Nice place to buy clothes and shoes in a very low price. I bought few clothes in funny prices. The quality is very good.

Went on Friday noon. Loads of stalls, about half selling clothes, most used. Perfect bargain hunting. Follow shops up north and into the park.

Huge Friday and Saturday market which fills the square. Very cheap stalls selling items for 50 cents and €1, full of people rummaging. Other stalls as well selling end of line items, etc. Avoid if you don't like lots of people in confined spaces! Locals...More

We were looking for a food market - which this is not (on a February Saturday). Possibly some good clothes in there somewhere - it is a very big space.

From Friday morning to Saturday evening, hundreds of stalls. Many leaders used, many in very good condition. Many stalls with extravagant clothes. Many stalls of merchandise in stock.

This area is worth a wander anyway but the market is huge so great if you're into such things. It's very much a local market but would satisfy travellers too with ponchos, belts and wallets, bags and scarves. Across the road is just one street...More
