Easy to find and worth a quick visit. Fontana Del Nettuno is located right in the heart of the city. Beautiful sculpture

This is really a uniques structure and is a must-see if in Bologna. Viewing is free and you can get some great pictures. It only takes a few minutes to see but is worth the visit.

When I was here in December, it was undergoing renovations so I missed seeing it. It is now revealed in all its splendour. Catch it at different times of the day to see it in different lights.

The fountain is centrally located and surrounded by cafe's, shops and a beautiful old church. It can be busy with tourists be warned.

Just as you enter Piazza Maggiore, you’ll pass this imposing statue/ fountain, surrounded by tourists taking selfies. I guess it’s a fine example of its kind...

Beatiful but under reconstruction. It is fenced at the moment and it not easy to take a photo of it.

During the last year they have renovated it. I do not think they have finished their work, so the water has to wait.
