SHOPPING

For shopping the two main streets are Via XX Settembre and Corso Vittorio Emanuele, where you can find department stores and high fashion shops. A much awaited event as regards shopping, is the “Sbaracco”, which is held on the last Saturday of summer sales, where all shops display their goods on the streets.
A street outside the Centre but full of shops is certainly Via Dante, not far from the Facsal.
As for shopping centres, there are four main shopping centres in the city:
Auchan: after the Po Bridge, where there are about forty shops and the supermarket of the same name.
Fax Hall: next to the station, in a special location, which is worth visiting as it stands on Roman walls. Here you can also find McDonald’s, the perfect stop for a small moment of refreshment after a train trip, before visiting the city.
Gothic: at the gates of the city, near the motorway exit and the ring road.
Galaxy: close to a multiplex cinema, also located outside the centre.
