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.
