Fontana dei Quattro fiumi, Rome

(4.7/5 based on 4,000+ 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.

  • a square where one could find place to sit and relax. Located in a square in Rome, it has fountains.  more »
  • Located at the center of Piazza Navona, this fountain by Bernini adorns this square as other fountains in Rome. If you saw "Angels and demons" is that fountain final where they save the cardinal

  • The fine structure has been put in place around 1650 by order of Pope Innocent X in full Baroque style and is very enjoyable as Piazza Navona is generally not as crowded as the Spanish Spain. Visit/half hour relaxation at any time of the day.-

  • 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.
