Interesting building and a very nice area to explore with lots of shops and restaurants. Areas to sit and people watch also.

I just love the colors of the buildings in the city center. If you are in Bologna you can't miss this palace.

One can almost hear the layers of voices of Roman and later tradesmen around this beautiful square. It feels as if you could hear the sound of golden and silver coins being exchanged for all sorts of goods from around the Mediterranean and beyond. Another...More
