It’s a good place to just sit and people watch and enjoy Bologna. There are shops and restaurants around the square or you can order takeout and sit at the church front steps. We visited mid-October and the weather was perfect and it wasn’t crowded at all.

This is a lovely piazza, quite big, very buzzy,lots going on as you would expect from a main piazza, plenty of eateries and bars, great spot to people watch and let the day or evening roll by with whatever takes your fancy

Interesting for what could be seen but maybe better to come back in a few years. It seemed like half the place was under construction. It is however the center of old Bologna and therefore of modern tourists.

A modest piazza by some Italian standards, but not too overwhelming and a friendly atmosphere! Good to sit people-watching with a gelato! Most of the people seemed to be locals,

I loved this piazza because there were lots of people but very few tourists. The people of Bologna love their city and it is fun to watch them enjoy it.

Loads to see and do which as an added bonus they are free.
Churches and architecture is amazing and the side streets off the main square are a must see.

We did the hop on hop off tour bus which is excellent value for money and the ticket is valid all day coupled with commentary.
There are a few street sellers who although do take no for an answer are persistent but friendly.

This is a very nice place with lot of palacios around. Take a small bus tour or a train tour to get around.

This is the most well- known landmark in Bologna and is usually buzzing.
Early on a Saturday morning it was quiet and possible to see how vast it is. It is surrounded on three sides by shops and cafés . On the fourth side is the huge Basilica of San Petronio the patron saint of Bologna

Majestic and full of history, Piazza Maguire is surrounded by Shops, cafes, the public library and museums!
It has been cold and wet, and yet it only added to its charm!
If you come in November bring a weather proof jacket, some comfortable boots and enjoy walking around this beautiful place
