The Piazza Maggiore is a great place to spend a few hours, just looking!!! It´s beautiful, packet with kids, teens, older people... all together, doing the same thing! It´s also very nice to seat in one of the cafes and have a cappuccino or a Bellini, a glass of wine! And relax!!! You can also find a 24hr big pharmacy there!

Basilica di San Petronio is worth the stop along with the Fontana del Nettuno..by the way if you can get there for New Years it is well worth the trop...

Sitting down at one of the two terraces and ENJOY your drink because it's quite expensive. While enjoying, watching the people passing by. Children chase the pigeons, adults taking pictures, locals strolling by, etc.

Some old buildings, not more to see. No shopping at all in a city center, that is quite weird.
