Montagnola Market

Browsing in a park

Bologna is admittedly a city which does not exactly abound in greenery, but one great exception is Montagnola Park, several blocks north of the historic centre. Together with the Giardini Margherita to the south of the Old Town, this is Bologna's main "green lung". Best times to visit are Friday and Saturday mornings for the weekly open-air markets, where you can browse a wide variety of antiques and bric a brac including stamps, records, craft, and artworks. In the vicinity you'll find more distinctly local shopping opportunities on and around the Piazza 8 Agosto.
