MEETING POINT: FONTANA DEL NETTUNO-NEPTUNE FOUNTAIN is located in Piazza Maggiore (the main square), in a traffic restricted area, so it is possible to reach it only on foot or by taxi/blue car.
Private coaches have to ask for a special permission to the Municipality of Bologna (www.comune.bologna.it), or to the local traffic officers department (www.comune.bologna.it/poliziamunicipale/) in order to approach the Main Square.
