Vintage fashion and craft in Bologna

Besides food and culture, Bologna also offers to visitors the chance of shopping for unique pieces of collectibles.

Whether you are a fashion addicted or want an original dress for your important occasions, this tour is for you!
I will show you downtown's hidden gems: small vintage clothes, vintage ateliers and local boutiques.
Between shopping and culture, just off the traditional routes of tourism, you will experience some of the most interesting shops in Bologna, for all tastes and budgets.


From Piazza Maggiore down to the U-zone (University area), we will explore the old town searching for its best vintage shops.
The tour does not include monuments sightseeing, although I can provide you with some information and random facts about Bologna while going from one shop to another.

It is possible to combine the shopping and sightseeing tours upon request.
If interested, please ask for a customized tour.
