At the opposite end of the shopping scale from the giant fabric warehouse is a delightful bookshop I found in Bologna.
I have come across the Libreria F. Veronese in Bologna a couple of times. It has been there since 1888 and quite possibly hasn’t changed all that much, except for the books, of course. To me, it is just what a book shop should look like. See what you think.
They sell antique and rare books, original and reproduction prints and lots of other things. I could spend hours in this lovely shop, climbing up and down the ladders, finding interesting books. There is only one tiny problem. I don’t read Italian.
Do look for this delightful shop if you are in Bologna. Via de Foscherari 19/a www.libreriaveronese.it
It is in a seriously cute street as well, take a look at the decoration on the building.
There are lots of posts on Bologna, one of my favourite cities in Italy. Click on the Bologna category to see more of the city.
PS. Sadly, last time I went to Bologna the bookshop was closed. I hope it was just for renovation, but I suspect not.
