The square, the duomo and Fontana del Nettuno is a must view if visiting bologna. It is just about 15mins away from the main train station, and at the end of the road there is the due Torre, also worth a visit. Believe that the town centre is all around Fontana del Nettuno so surely cannot miss.

Nice fountain. Lots of people in the square. Nothing spectacular, but no reason not to drop by, take a picture and enjoy the scene for awhile.

This fountain stands out, it is located in area of Piazza Maggiore and San Petronio Basilica. Lots of pedestrians and tourists here, either enjoying gelato, people watching or taking photos of friends, which is what we did. You could say it is Bologna's mini David!

An amazing symbol of the city, well known around the world. The place may get too crowded so I would suggest a visit early in the morning.

Of course, it is a "must" in Bologna. A wonderful fountain. An assembly of beautiful bronze statues spreading water in the fountain. Don't miss it, is in the center, not far from the main attractions.

It;'s a beautiful place where you can have some photos. Water from the tap near the fountain is very good for drinking too. Beware of pick pocketers.

An wonderful fountain-an assembly of beautiful bronze statues spreading water.Situated in the homonym square,a little square adjacent to Piazza Maggiore(The Big Square) and surrounded by a lot of other interesting landmarks of the old town:Palazzo Re Enzo,Palazzo Comunale,Basilica di San Petronio.Walking distance(about 300-400m) to Torre Asinelli. The square is very crowded,lots of tourists are wandering here.

Everyone seems to conjugate here and it is heavily photographed by tourists. It is worth a visit- it is often surrounded by street artists and entertainers. I don't think it is the best fountain in Italy however it is a pleasure to see.
