From the Piazza lead miles of porticoed streets (25 miles to be exact). Sheltering beneath the porticoes are shops to suit every taste, from dusty book shops to exclusive boutiques, all the top Italian designers are represented. There are many antique shops in Bologna, some specialising in certain periods, the pottery of Emilia Romagna is wonderful, there are several outlets in Bologna. Do bear in mind that generally shop opening hours are between 09.30 to 13.00 and 16.00 to 19.00 and are closed all day on Thursdays. There is a daily market (except Sundays) in via Ugo Bassi where an amazing array of fresh fish and vegetables can be bought. It’s well worth visiting to take in the atmosphere and to see the exotic produce against the backdrop of dark buildings and cobbled streets. Every second week-end of the month an antiques market is held in the beautiful Piazza Santo Stefano, this is an open air market where stall holders display and sell their treasures.
