    It is a fountain on the West side of the Piazza del Popolo. It is confusing too wide Piazza del Popolo, so go quite near the fountain. It feels small is not small fountains!

    Located on the West side of the square, opposite the Fontana della Dea di Roma. It was built in 1823 by Giovanni Ceccarini, under project by Giuseppe Valadier. The source shows Neptune with your Pitchfork, accompanied by two Tritons holding dolphins.

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.
