MARKET OF THE HERBS Market delle Erbe although small, but the selection of fresh and quality products happy. The main buyers in the market are locals. On the market are mainly fresh vegetables and fruits, there are also greens, sausages and meat products, cheeses, fish, olives, etc..
THE QUADRILATERO MARKET The “Quadrilateral” is a bustling area in Bologna’s city centre with a craft, mercantile and trading tradition dating back to the Middle Ages. You cross the tall perspective archways leaving the elegant Piazza Maggiore behind you to venture into the narrow fragrant alleyways of the ancient market of Medieval origin with the characteristic “holes”. This area boasts a long tradition of specialized handicraft and commercial activities. Shops that have often been handed down through the generations sell the same category of goods or have still kept their historic architecture and furnishings.
THE QUADRILATERO MARKET little shops, food tastes and lots of fun
At the end of the tour you will take a walk back to your hotel or else hang out in the city center
