bologna streets

Most designer names can be found on Via Farini and the adjoining Galleria Cavour, as well as countless boutiques, shoe shops and luxury tech. High-street shops line Via dell’Indipendenza and the best foodie souvenirs are to be found in specialty shops on the pedestrian streets in between the two.

L'Inde Le Palais

L’Inde Le Palais is one of the most popular boutiques in the city with a beautiful collection from both Italian and international designers such as Moschino, JW Anderson and Balmain.

Fabrica Features

Fabrica Features is a little concept store opposite the Leica shop on Strada Maggiore that champions young product designers and creatives. They have outlets in Lisbon and Istanbul, though this is the original. Expect art mags, homewares and cool little toys and trinkets – a perfect place to shop for unusual gifts.

Tamburini

Tamburini on Via Caprarie is the finest delicatessen in Bologna. The display of fresh egg pastas, cheeses and celebrated cured meats is exquisite, and all the produce can all be sampled at the self-service café, which is open at lunchtime.
