  • This is such an interesting fountain to look at and study the meanings of each of the figures. Definitely recommend seeing this beautiful fountain.  more »
  • This fountain is located in the center of the piazza Navona. It is the work of Bernini and it is dedicated to the 4 rivers. This same fountain is topped by an obelisk from the circus of Maxentius. Superb

  • My favorite fountain (other than THE Trevi Fountain), that I have seen in Rome. Right in the middle of the Piazza, so it's easy to locate. Usually surrounded by a crowd. It really is a very lovely fountain and of you go at the right time you can enjoy the Plaza and have lunch without a crowd. Check it out.
  • If you want a selfie stick ,a toy you smash and re form or a fake bag yo this is your spot...I watch people getting ripped off with friendship bracelets... if try to shake your hand or give you gift .... there screwing you I seen them hold people demanding money........ common of rome
  • Great art work. The pillar has egyptian old lettering
  • An absolutely horgeous plaza. The fountain is magnificent. So delightful to sit and enjoy this beautiful fountain and the artwork represented. A sight you will definitely want to see.
  • Domiziano Ristorante - Bar - Grill,,,naturally, everybody has a unique favorite type and taste of their most desirable pizza. Not many, if any, ever saw Francesca down even a mere slice, but that all changed...
