Main Square (Piazza Maggiore)

Highly recommended
Between medieval palaces and the Gothic basilica, the heart of Bologna unfolds around an immense open area made up of the Maggiore and Nettuno Squares. The Fontana del Nettuno, a huge bronze by Flemish sculptor Jean Bologne (1529-1608) is both graceful and powerful, like the city itself.
