If you visit Bologna you'll wind up here whether you intend to or not. It's the center of Bologna's fine range of sights and attractions. Neptune's statue is nearby-- we've read that Facebook banned it as obscene before issuing an embarrassed apology-- you can visit...More

Well this piazza is a meeting place for locals and tourists. The piazza is used for events like in the summer where you will enjoy movies under the stars. Around the piazza you definitely have to stroll around the small picturesque streets with lovely osterias

The Piazza is full of stunning architecture and is right in the city centre. There is a great selection of cafes and bars which aren’t extortionate (which is surprising considering the location). Definitely worth a visit, whether you’re strolling through or want to relax for...More

Even though it is in the center of town, the bar prices are not outrageous, so I would often find myself back here for a beer or spritz in one of its bars, taking in the view of the Basilica and watching life go by....More
