One the main symbols of Bologna is the gigantic statue of the god Neptune that dominates a graceful fountain, currently the site of an important restoration project. While works are progressing, you cannot see Neptune from far away…but with this visit you can see the Giant eye-to-eye. This extremely rare opportunity has been opened to the public – and you’re lucky to be in the front row! While restoration experts bring the fountain back to its former glory, get a firsthand look at their work and at the world-famous bronze by sculptor Giambologna.
See the restorers at work (weekdays only). The site can be visited all week.
