If you like to people watch, this is a great place to be. It is not the Trevi fountain, but when in Bologna, you can get a gelato and hang out here.

The highlight of Piazza Maggiore surrounding area. It gleams with long history and is quite a sight to behold. You definitely will be taking photos here.

This square is the most important place in Bologna. The center of everything that happens in the City, and, where everybody goes first.

the heart of the city, a fountain to rival the Trevi in Rome. In the main square of Bologna it is a good reference point to navigate by.
