Bologna is well known for its iconic covered street sidewalk arcades. Via dell'Indipendenza showcases these features, while also showing dazzling displays of Italian Architecture.

Direct route from Stazione Centrale all the was to Piazza Maggiore , Neptune and old shopping areas. Restaurants, ice cream stalls and shopping. They close a large part of it on Sunday so people can promenade.All for free (except the shopping).
