Piazza Nettuno, Bologna: 31 reviews and 68 photos
Adjoining Piazza Maggiore is the smaller Piazza Nettuno. The centrepiece of the square is the Fontana del Nettuno - a fountain featuring a bronze statue of Neptune, God of the Sea. The fountain was constructed in the mid-16th century, and along with Neptune there are four cherubs, and four mermaid-looking creatures who have water spouting forth from their breasts.
On the eastern side of the square is the Palazzo del Re Enzo. It was named after King Enzo from Sicily, who was banished to the palazzo for 20 years in the 13th century. These days the palace is only open to the public when it is used for exhibitions.
Directions: At the southern end of Via dell'Independenza
