Caffe' Zanarini
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Piazza Galvani, 1, Bologna; Tel.: 051-2750041
This bar first opened its doors in 1924. It's located under the portico of the Archiginnasio Palace right behind Piazza Maggiore and is a classic place to stop for a coffee or a snack. In fine weather there are tables outside in the piazza; the pear ice cream and the selection of pastries are wonderful. The golden moment of the day is the aperitif hour when an incredible bouquet of free finger foods, snacks and appetizers are offered along with your drink.
