  • It's very easy to get blasé about all the amazing statues and fountains in Rome, but this one is lovely. It's easy to find too and you can take it in while walking between other major sites.  more »

  • Another gorgeous fountain in a ancient plaza. The spacious area allows you to walk around a little more than the narrow streets, though it is usually very crowded here. The surrounding buildings are very beautiful and add even more history to the scene that you observe here.
  • A must see fountain in Rome. Not as popular as Trevi, but arguably more interesting.
  • Lovely place. A lot of restaurant to enjoy a glass of wine and the view.
  • Very special and spectacular fountain. The plaza is very beautiful.
  • You should come by here to see a pretty plaza. The fountain is nice. Don't miss it.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
