  • The fountain was built by Bernini father and located at the foot of the staircase of Trinità dei Monti. Go back to see her every time is a pleasure!

  • The fountain is placed directly under the staircase of Trinità dei Monti. Unlike the classical fountains it comes as a real sculpture (the boat) lying and submersible. The water flows from a mouth placed centrally over a bowl inside the boat and then spill over in the boat itself and end up in the tub by scrolling over the flared edges give the boat. Very nice is the entire monument vision rich, collected but placed beautifully in the square. A great masterpiece of Bernini, father and son which has been battered by vandals and hooligans. The renovations have almost completely returned to the "barcaccia" on its original splendor.

  • Next to the Spanish stairs. Very nice composition of Square , stairs and Fontaine. And don't forget to buy an ice cream for the full enjoyment! 🙃
  • We have drunk the water from the fountain. The water of Rome was cool, delicious. The Rome has had a good water supply from old Roman. The system of water supply was the best in the world.
  • A beautiful fountain at the bottom of the Spanish Steps, made by Pietro Bernini with his promising son Gian Lorenzo
  • A very nice fountain in front of the Spanish steps.
  • A very interesting themed water fountain that depicts a half-sunken boat, very near the beautiful Spanish steps. The lighting, as usual, is spectacular at night, and lots of other tourists to be expected.
