Fontana dei Quattro fiumi, Rome

(4.7/5 based on 4,200+ reviews on the web)
Centered in the Rome's Piazza Navona, Fontana dei Quattro fiumi is one of Italy's most ornate fountains. Admire the detailed sculptures depicting the four rivers known in the world at the time: Nile, Danube, Ganges, and Rio de la Plata. Bernini designed the Egyptian obelisk crowning the 35 m (115-ft) tall structure in 1651. The fountain was intended to be the centerpiece of Pope Innocent X's nearby family palace. Fontana dei Quattro fiumi is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Rome Edition.

  • Best in a cafe next to the fountain and recover from exhausting sightseeing and watch the revelry.

  • When you look at this-think: here are built the same! Not too lazy to create such beauty. See worth, but no masterpiece. A lot of people on the square at night. Feeling that Rome never sleeps.

  • Because that you can tell from this source, impressive from any angle. Only surpassed by the fontana di Trevi. It gives you a special air to the Piazza Navona

  • Beautiful and large fountain in the middle of a lovely and lively piazza. Even in rain, there is almost always a group of people standing near it and taking pictures. But for good reason. Well worth the visit.
  • Situated in the center of the Navona circus, a beautifully detailed work of art. A still functioning fountain. Area is lovely as well.
  • Beautiful. Roma is so full of magic. I think every fountain, and square is just amazing! See you soon Roma!
  • Beautiful. Wonderful place to people watch, sit down on a bench and have a snack.
  • Amazing fountain located in the Piazza Navona just outside Sant'Agnese in Agone. Well worth a visit if you are heading towards the Trevi Fountain.
