We stopped here several times during our stay, as to one side there is a lovely restaurant, which at mid-day is beautifully located in the sun. We had lovely wines and food here. They also hold an antiques market here on Saturday's and also there is a lovely wine bar as well. Can recommend.

A lively and lovely square in the pedestrian zone, with a couple of coffee bars, ice cream parlours, and a "secret" passage leading to the three arrows on Strada Maggiore. In the evening, students gather to play music together and have fun.

Simple, espectacular, looks like a small village inside the big city.
Surrounded by places and churches, it is the right place to take a rest, get some nice food and have a relaxing cup of coffee.

This place has a nice atmosphere, with bars and gelaterias along the streets. It is fully car-free, and opens on a great complex of ancient churches.

Allow a few hours to visit this unusual complex of churches all on the same site ... need time to get full understanding of history and layout ... certainly in top 5 must visit in Bologna

4 churches side by side in a lovely square, fascinating brickwork and domes. Also a cloister which could be interesting if not packed with school parties!

I loved this area, I felt really ancient. Some areas in Bologna felt really decadent but this specific area was really nice and well preserved.

The Church in this Piazza is stunning and has the most beautiful Aura. The road leading up to the Piazza is a lovely row of shops and places to eat and drink.

It is a wonderful spot to stay for a drink or a coffee and also visit the church. You can spend some time there, together with locals and tourists alike.

Feels pretty strange to visit this square but it's unique, one of its kind. It´s also called the seven churches square since there are a group of religious buildings consisting of seven coherent churches called Basilica di Santo Stefano. Actually this place is not a real square because it's a place where the street Via Santo Stefano becomes wider. There are beautiful buildings surrounding the piazza with porticoes along both sides. Today the piazza works as a pedestrian zone and hosts many cultural events and concerts for example.
