A night walk through Bologna city centre

Last night I couldn't sleep. I was home alone (my Husbee is in Budapest trying to assemble our new furniture..GOOD LUCK Husbee) so I decided to take a walk and go to the city centre.
My apartment is almost 1,5 Km from the main square (piazza Maggiore) so I thought that walking was a good idea to release stress (I am a bit under pressure lately) and breath some fresh air.

Here are some of the pics I took during my walk.

Pics 1-2-3. Gamberini, in Via Ugo Bassi, is an excellent bar/caffeteria/bakery (actually one of the best in town).
Each time I pass by its window, I have to stop and look at the beautiful cakes they display (and yes, it's impossible not to be tempted!!)

Pic 4. Altero, the best pizza take away in town (and only a few steps away from Gamberini). I mean, everyone who is from Bologna knows Altero (it's always crowded, well maybe not at 22.00) and serves the best pizza slices for as little as 1-1,20 euro!

Pics 6 -5 FURLA, selling high street bags and accessories. Apparently colourful, plastic bags will be a trend this spring/summer (I am still not sure if I like them or not :)

Pic 7. Muji, one of my favourite (Japanese) shops. It recently opened in Bologna. I am always enchanted by its simple designs (and very good quality).

Pic 8. Another lovely shop, "Bianco", selling beautiful (and expensive) clothes in Via Marchesana

Pic 9. La taverna del Postiglione ( a romantic and excellent restaurant a few steps away from Piazza Maggiore, again in Via Marchesana (try the tagliatelle al ragu- tagliatelle with meat sauce! Unless you are vegetarian, you will love them!)

Unfortunatley I could not take more pics as my camera battery was very low....but I ll take another night walk and add more images very soon!!
