Very cool fountain in the middle of a small green space. We parked a few blocks away and walked to get pictures. A nice stroll in a beautiful area.

I love Italy and the fountains here are reminiscent of the magical grandeur of Rome. You will feel like you left the States and every photo is frame worthy!

Lovely spot, but was spoiled by a handful of political protestors nearby. Would not let them deter you from enjoying fountain. They were not aggressive, seemed a lame attempt at protest, really.
