Here you can buy some beautiful gifts to take home.
At S. W. they sell various kinds of handmade things. I mean items made of glass, wood, porcelain and so on.
What to buy: Here you can find statues, lamps, candles and lots of home decorations.
Good sports store. They call themselves the best in the alps. Selection is good. Have some good prices on own stuff as well.
Just being remodeled at the moment.
Have a good restaurant as well on back side.
The "Lauben" or "Portici" are arcades that have lots of wonderful shops inside: fashion, books, souvenirs and handicraft - so this makes it the perfect shopping area of Bolzano. The arcades give shade during the hot summer months, but also protection against rain or snow in the colder seasons.
Even if you do not want to buy anything, do not hesitate to go inside those shops. We, for instance, went inside the wonderful handicraft shop and I was surprised at all the stories above the ground floor. Wonderful atmosphere, too!
The Obstmarkt = Fruit Market is such a colorful sight to see - and it is not only fruit that you can buy there, but also vegetables, cheese and the famous smoked ham. Apart from the delicious goods there is also some culture to admire:
on the opposite side of Neptune's Well (erected in 1745) there is a Neogothic house, which used to be Hotel Sonne. This is where famous people like Goethe, Herder and Emperor Josef II stayed overnight!
This is one of the most beautiful shops situated in porticoe Leuben. It sells leather garments but the prices are pretty much high.
What to buy: To those of you who are interest in buying Italian high quality leather garments: do not buy it in the winter time because you'll pay double price comparing the prices in July of August.
The whole shopping area of Bolzano is porticoed, and it remained me on those at Padova or Bologna. Most of the shops you find "in giro" selling winter sports articles.
What to buy: I suggest you to buy clothes in the Veneto area because the prices here are much higher then those in Verona or Vicenza.
If you like fresh fruits and vegetables, a special area in Bolzano is dedicated to just that. The fruit market area offers shoppers an eye opener to a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh watermelons, grapes, peaches, and pears are just some of the fruits they sell. The area is worth to have a look.
