The Quadrilatero is one of Bologna’s most unexpected delights: a tight-knit weave of ancient lanes, packed with local boutiques and market stalls. Built on the site of Roman Bologna, the Quadrilatero is one of the best places to stroll within the city, offering mesmerising sights and enticing smells throughout its ancient streets.
At the heart of this area is the traditional market itself, lining Via Pescherie and Via Drapperie in a chaotic mishmash. Fresh fruit tumbles across table tops, gaudy trinkets sparkle beneath protective cases and eagle-eyed hawkers proclaim their wares for all to hear. It’s a place where Bologna is at its rawest, and is definitely worthy of exploration.
