Usually there are buses going there from the big cities, but of course, it is easier to go by a rented car or a bike.

If you want to bring home a souvenir, don’t pass by the local alcohol. Sparkling wine Lambrusco is quite popular here thanks to its pleasant taste and quite an affordable price. Besides, it is hard to find it outside the region. Try Nocino liqueur, which is made from spirit, nuts, sugar, and spices. A small bottle of this drink will warm you during those long winter evenings and make you remember this welcoming land. If you are not afraid that your souvenir might go bad during the trip, buy Mortadella, a sausage from Bologna, made according to the traditional recipes. However, if your trip back home takes more than a day, there is a chance the product might start to go bad.
You can buy traditional balsamic vinegar, which they usually add to the salads. There is also a typical balsamic sauce, which has a sour-sweet taste and a viscous consistency. It is also added to the salads, going perfectly with any fruit. You should most certainly buy at least one of the local types of cheese. Raw-smoked sausage, pasta, green olive oil – those are the things to buy in Emilia-Romagna at low prices. If you prefer to buy not food, but something useful, you should purchase a coffeemaker from the local manufacturers. They are of the greatest quality, thanks to the Italians’ huge love for coffee.

It is an interesting fact, that the more you go to the south of the region, the lower the prices get, but the range of the products decreases as well. The only exception is the bags from the local producers. They are cheaper in the central part of Emilia-Romagna, and the selection is wider. The biggest factories, which produce those accessories, are located here. Remember, it is not common at Italian markets to touch the products with your hands. If you don’t know the name of the thing you like, just point on it and say “per favore”, which means “please”.
Bologna Despite the Italian temper, it is not common to bargain at the market, as they usually sell the products, which they grew or made themselves. Though, you are totally allowed to ask for a discount at clothes or a shoe store. At the market, pay more attention to the stores, where there is a line in front of them, as the Italians won’t waste their time buying non-quality goods.
Emilia-Romagna is one of the best places for holidays with kids in Italy. There are kilometers of fine sandy beaches, where you will find trampolines, slides, children’s playgrounds. … Open
Every other weekend there is a flea market near the San Stefano basilica in Bologna. There you can buy paintings, bags, old press, carvings, and even furniture.

Here you will not only be able to buy various porcelain household goods but also visit the International Museum of Ceramics.
