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!

The lovely old centre, with a number of narrows streets, populated largely with food shops but also some nice old kitchen and ironmongery shops. Quite a delight to wander the old streets and browse.
