Beautiful fountain at the central square of Bologna. During the day lots of people visit it. It's not only an attraction to tourists, but young locals use this also as a meeting point. Wonder how many marriages started with a meeting at this fountain.

Have they turned off the water indefinitely ? Pictures we had seen showed golden bowls but they were pretty poor shape when we visited

currently under renovation, so many of the sputs that make this fountain so much fun are not operating, Still the place to have yourself photographed if you can avoid the hordes of selfie-stick wielding tourisst!

Had a really lovely day here - sat at a nearby cafe for gelato. Came back the next day and the fountain was covered in scaffolding!

The fountain is great. To be very honest I didn't understood, why not an Italian master made it, but it is wonderful. This the meeting point at the Piazza Maggiore, you should miss itt.

Beautiful fountain which must be viewed from multiple angles to be fully appreciated (especially from the right rear). Located in Piazza Maggiore, it is main gathering point in Bologna. Spend a few minutes up close and a little further back, and then visit the duomo or the tower.

For me, this was the most beautiful sight on Piazza Maggiore. I was also amused with the fact that the logo of the Maserati car company is based on the trident in this Neptune statue.
