The Piazza Maggiore is the heart of Bologna, the heart of the city, and has the important buildings of the city, including the Palace of the Podesta (XIII century), Town Hall, rebuilt in the late fifteenth century, on the east side, the Palace of the Banks, built in the XVI century due to Vignola, next to the church, the Palace of the notaries (XIV-XV centuries), and on the west side there is the Palazzo Comunale (XIII-XV) , San Petronio and the Neptune Fountain Square. Although I visited on a Wednesday during the night, it was as if it were a Saturday! Really full of people!
I love flea markets! And this is a very special one, as well as being in the center and despite not having just too many paraetas, you can find a lot of antiques and a lot of stories behind them. Dinnerware, medals, coins and stamps, cards, letters, postcards, jibs, watches, brooches ... and depending on the season. Although I was in a hurry to catch the bus to go to the airport I could not resist it.
