Via Ugo Bassi

The shopping golden mile continues

Running several blocks through the city centre north of Piazza Maggiore, Via Ugo Bassi is the continuation of Via dell'Indipendenza and the "golden mile" of Bologna shopping, continuing the upmarket shops while mixing in a new variety of restaurants, cafés, gourmet shops, and sundry other shops of varying types. It's a great stretch to leave for the end of your shopping outing in order to allow for a stop for a snack, refreshment, or meal. If, however, you're still anxious to truly shop until you drop, you can keep it going along the contiguous Via San Felice with its historic arched porticoes, which happen to be home to the city's most popular shoe shops.
