Not much to see as scaffolding surrounds the statue. Plenty of other sites and things to do in the immediate area.

We could not visit because the fountain is closed for repairs. After all, Neptune is due for major make up and re-adjustment after standing in the elements for centuries in the same position. I guess they are sharpening his trident.

Went to see this and was unable to as it is currently being refurbished and is covered in scaffolding and screens. Check that it has reopened to avoid dusappointment

Such a shame but we will return to see it. Scaffolding means you cannot see this. Not sure when it reopens but check if you intend to visit.

Hopefully by the time you read this review it will have been restored and no longer covered up. Turn around and look at the faces of the resistance fighters on the memorial behind you instead.

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.

The Fontana is the iconic symbol of Bologna and is undergoing complete overhaul at the moment so it is covered in scaffold etc. But you can be given a tour around so get very close and see the detail much better than from the ground...More

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.
