This is the main street in central Bologna that stretches from Piazza Magiorre to the Bologna Centrale.

Bologna's busiest shopping district. Fun, good brands, nice service, chestnuts roasting on the street -- super nice.

We used this street a lot as we walked from the railway station area to the city centre. It is largely a shopping area but there are many small snack bars. A small park is at the station end of the street but not much fun in the winter. The cathedral will be passed and there is another church in... More

A long straight wide road through the centre of Bologna with plenty of shops of different sorts; shoes, clothes and other fashion items. Also some trattorias and coffee shops.

Beautiful street bordered by porticos under which lie shops, cafes and the occasional restaurant. The street is lively and busy and feels like a real slice of local life in Bologna.
