It's so much fun! I think that's what people from overseas picture when they think of picturesque streets in Italy. You're in the middle of a beautiful chaos. There are lots of young people hurrying or strolling because let's not forget that Bologna is famous...More

The city vibes are right here, in this little square next to Piazza Maggiore. Salumerie, grocery shops, book stores and fresh pasta everywhere. This is the place to feel Bologna. Take your time to drink eat and stroll.

The narrow streets are interesting but over-crowded. It is a view back to an older world, and much of it now maintained for tourists. Still interesing and worth a stroll thorugh.

The Quadilatero is a square of little lanes off Piazza Maggiore crammed with food shops, restaurants and clothing boutiques. Definitely should be on your list of places to go if visiting Bologna though you probably won't want to spend more than an hour or two...More

It isn't big. It is only a few streets which have lots of bars and food outlets. It is very busy. If you like food and drink then you will inevitably visit here. We did and we did enjoy it.

I had thought that this area would be really touristy, but it wasn't, in fact I found Bologna one of the least touristy large cities I've been to- maybe it was because we were out of season. I thought this area near the main square...More

if you want to have an aperitif we must go in the quadrilatero streets where you can find a lot of restaurant or shop where you can taste typical food from Bologna. you need to taste mortadella and other cold cuts like prosciutto, salami. suggested

Such interesting and vibrant streets just off Piazza Maggiore. Loads of interesting food shops and restaurants, with interesting signs and windows.

While well located in the heart of the old city, that wasn't enough to get us enthusiastic. Although some interesting fruit and veg stalls, fish stalls, jewellery and trinket stalls, it was boring compared with many other markets across Europe and Asia, even Australia.
