“Great statue - hard to miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

You'll never not see this statue if you're wandering through Piazza Maggiore. That said, it really is a great statue - imposing and grand. We weren't able to see it with the water on, but I would imagine that would just add to the grandness.

“Treasure in the Piazza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

I must have taken a photo of every statue in Bologna but I still think Neptune is one of power and culture. Mind you the bloke in the photo is better than any statue. I must admit that it is a site to see. Any if you are passing Piazza Maggorie then you will happen upon Neptune anyway. Enjoy.

“A focal point and meeting place in a central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

A very strong and robust sculpture of Neptune in this lovely piazza.
He is not very well endowed for such a large man, but locals will tell you to look at him from behind and you will notice something different!
