The atmosphere was lovely and the photo opportunities are abundant. Of particular interest is the Neptune Statue when viewed from different angles! Beware pickpockets and beggars though.

The huge square gives more than enough space for everyone. Clean, safe and tidy. During the evening the buildings are beautiful to see.

A nice place to see, nothing much to do. Some eating places and most important of all is the tourist information office where you buy tickets to the tower

Bologna was a real surprise! Beautiful, elegant, rich in history and culture, and a wonderful place for shopping. The 40 km of porticos were very impressive! I want to go back ! Linda
