Fountain Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
