4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

As evening falls the atmosphere is excellent, christmas tree and lights, well worth seeing. So many roads around have christmas lights, very festive.

“Nice Italian Piazza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

The piazza is quite big, with many nice historical public buildings. There are also a beautiful statue of Neptune (Nettuno en Italian) with fountain, it is sometimes referred to as Piazza del Nettuno. Make sure also to visit the Basilica di san Petronio (the saint patron of Bologna) which is one of the biggest in the world by size, but note that photos are not allowed inside the Basilica.

“Nice place to hang out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

The main square in the old center of Bologna. You will definitely stumble upon this without even trying. You can get to everything from here relatively quickly. Good people watching. Very beautiful.

“Bolongna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

This statue is in one of the main squares in Bologna Italy. The shopping area around this piazza included a combination of fruit, vegetables, fish and other meats. The selection was wonderful.

“Classic Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

The Neptune Statue, the open airy feel. We just happened to be there when a chocolate festival was going on. YUM!
Nothing I disliked.
