Shopping in Bolzano, Italy

Bolzano is a historic market town with deep roots. Today it is a major commercial centre which extends from the narrow, charming streets of the historic centre to Corso Libertà, and the high streets and shopping malls of its quarters. Shopping here is a reflection of multi-cultural exchange: from traditional South Tyrolean clothing to designer fashion, from traditional stores selling local products to Italian regional delis, from charming local market stalls to the market of piazza delle Erbe, a colourful triumph of fruits, vegetables, flowers and breads.
