“Bologna Life”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Great for a stroll - have a coffee, sit in the sun.Dont forget to stop into "sala Borsa" the public building near the Neptune stare - 3 floors of GORGEOUS! and a lovely coffee shop - Roman ruins underground to see through glass flooring. Stunning.

“Impressive..”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

An impressive pedestrians only square which is less commercialised than some of the more popular Italian cities. Surrounded by impressive buildings with the Neptune statue in the centre. we spent several days in the City and the square is a great start point for walking in any direction. Probably a great place to sit in the sunshine.. Unfortunately it rained most of the time we were there, but still rather good.
