“Overwhelming place”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The building and plaza scale is impressive.
The arches give this overwhelming sensation of being on a true rich historic place. All the buldings arround are great. Have a coffe or ice cream on one of the coffe shops on the arches.

“Unforgettable.”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

The Piazza is remarkable for the buildings which surround it and for its beauty. However, we also love this square because of its association with one of Italy's greatest singers, Lucio Dalla. He lived just off it and one of his best records is named "Piazza Grande". However,

Wonderful Piazza. Be sure to grap a table and watch the world go by while you enjoy the wine and the Italy way of life.

“pretty”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

there were live musicians and people out and about. Very safe and clean. I liked it because it had many restaurants nearby and a nice fountain of Neptune.

“How much I wish visit again!!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Immediately after I arrived in Bologna and settle to the hotel went to visit the Piazza Maggiore. What a place: so busy, so crowd, gaggle, but so peaceful and a magic quietness. Music around, side walk cafes, church, sculptures and enough places to get a great peace and rest. I visited during that day till late night several times. Someone told me that this square is same as 400 years ago. You can inspire yourself as living at that time. Simply magic place!!
