This is one of the most known monument in Bologna but unfortunattely under the renovation, so it cannot be seen. We were a little bit dissapointed but what can you do if it needs the renovation.

Unfortunately under renovation at present. I had a peep through the protective fence and clearly this is magnificently grand fountain. Looks like it is about to be made great again!

Nothing to see as yet apart from plastic sheeting covering the statue. Shame but still there is an awful lot to see and do in the close vicinity.

If you came to Bologna expressly to see this statue, you're going to be disappointed as it is completely covered up. But it is located in the attractive piazza maggiore so you're going to see it "inSitu" anyway. From pictures, it looks impressive.

Restoration work was going on. We had a guided tour of the statue. The guide was informative and interested in sharing extra information also.

If this is a must do in Bologna be aware that it is undergoing renovation work at the moment. You can get tickets for a inside tour to view the work being done. Ch ck with the information office in the piazza maggiore.

We booked the tour to see the fountain under scaffold through the Tourist Information Office around the corner. The only slot available in our weekend was for 7.00pm. The guides conducting the tour arrived promptly asked everyone where they were from then proceeded to conduct the tour in Italian, barely saying two words in English. Consequently we got bored and...

The Fontana is a wonder to see when it is lit up at night. We have seen it often, but on this stay in Bologna we discovered that it was being worked on and thus surrounded by scaffolding and weather proof "wrap". But, you can see the work inside the "wrap" if you fill out a waver form. So, in... More
