“Meeting place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

tHIS is an ideal spot for meeting up with friends etc.,
can't be missed or mistaken for anywhere else.... the fountain wasn't working whilst there. Used more for seating than anything else and a magnet for beggars of the area which was a bit disappointing as it was obvious that people were working in groups. Suspect this is just another hazard of city life worldwide

“cool fountain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

But I just wish the women fountains worked! That, as silly as it sounds, was the highlight! I had heard about the fountain before going and wanted to see it. Ah well, it was still a nice fountain.

“A weekend in Bologna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

I have recently been a couples of times in Bologna, spending the weekend with my family.
I live near Milan, and for years I passed near Bologna while travelling South or North bound, but I never stopped.
It has been a shame, in fact Bologna is very nice and there are a lot of places to visit.
The Fontana del Nettuno (Neptun's Fountain) is very nice and is the right core of a wonderful central square.
If you visit the Fontana del Nettuno, please do not miss the library, located in the same square, placed in the old Stock Exchange (that actually never opened as such).
I stayed overnight at Holiday Inn Express, located in the Fiera area, in VIa del Commercio Associato, 3.
It is a great place, clean and comfortable, with a restaurant inside.
In my view it gives an excellent quality/cost ratio.
You can get to the hotel by car and take a bus to downtonw, or you can drive just few kilomenters and park in the covered pay park at Piazza 8 Agosto.

“Bologna is bolshie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Despite complaints from the religious authorities of yester year, Neptune remains uncut and unexpurgated! It is one of the sights of the city and makes a great navigation point too.
