This is another pretty fountain that is well worth a visit. The weather was so hot and people were dipping their hands in to cool off.

Fountain inside of Piazza Bernini. We passed by this on our way back from the termini to the Trevi fountain. In the middle of a traffic circle, Triton stands

Because I was my own tour guide, I stumbled upon this gem. Here's the deal. The fountains in Rome are really cool and it's worth trying to see as many as possible. They exist in places that are unusual sometimes. Like in the middle of...More

A true master, this fountain anchors Piazza Barberini just south of Villa Borghesi in central Rome. Depicting Triton, a minor sea god, blowing a conch, this baroque style free standing fountain was the first of its kind in a major public area. Done in travetine,...More

This fountain is situated in the Piazza Barberini and is one of the smaller fountains in Rome. It was designed by Bernini and at the time of our visit in January it had a significant amount of ice on it which made it very interesting.

This fountain is designed by Bernini for the Barberini family and is situated in the homonymous square in Rome. It is pretty, indeed, but is going through major rework, so you cannot see it in its grandour.

Unfortunately, in our visit in April fountain was under repair. The fountain itself was designed by Bernini and is very beautiful.

Minor water spot, but nice to walk by, when you are wondering around this pretty old city. Not sure I would need to see it again, but pretty to pas by.

This is an interesting fountain that dates from the 17th century that was used to supply water to the city. It was even more interesting when we visited in January as it was covered in a lot of ice. The fountain is smaller than most...More

A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is
all about action. From early morning through the wee
hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a
never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or
take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming
gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of
hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle
are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you
