Hands down the most bad-ass fountain I saw in my time in Italy. Poseidon throws it down with the help of some bad-ass babies!

This is cool. As other reviewers have said, you can't miss this and shouldn't. It's fun, hilarious and as impressive as any of the fountains in Rome. Enjoy!

Bologna's most famous attraction. You can't miss it, so you should definitely see it. And feel free to stand at that angle where it looks like his finger is a penis and giggle. Everyone does.

A popular and convenient meeting spot, and an obvious and exciting attraction in Piazza Maggiore.

La fuente de Neptuno es uno de los monumentos más famosos de la ciudad. Los locales llaman a la estatua "el gigante", por sus dimensiones y hay muchas leyendas a su alrededor. Una dice que para tener suerte en los exámenes los estudiantes tienen que dar dos vueltas a la fuente en sentido contrario a las agujas del reloj. Otra dice que el símbolo de la marca de autos Maserati se inspiró en el tridente que tiene la estatua.
Además, la fuente tiene varios detalles que vale la pena mirar. Suele haber mucha gente porque es un punto de encuentro muy usado.

Dietro Piazza Maggiore, davanti l'ingresso della Sala Borsa, rimarrete affascianti dalla Fontana del Nettuno, fontana che racchiude uno dei sette segreti di Bologna, per scoprirlo, basta mettersi sul piccolo declivio dietro la statua, proprio vicino le scalette della Sala Borsa e li, guardando le spalle della statua, scoprirete il segreto. Simbolo della città, insieme alle sue torri, d'estate viene attaccata da centinaia di turisti che litigano per prenderne le acque.
