Stop for a photo op at Fontana del Tritone, a beautiful 17th-century fountain in the middle of Piazza Barberini. Don't forget to lower the camera and really get a good look at the statue in the middle: the muscular, larger-than-life character of Triton supported by dolphin fin tails and blowing on a conch shell. The dramatic attraction celebrates the restored Acqua Felice aqueduct and provides water from the source.

    It is not very far from the nerve centre of Rome but so little secluded. Moreover, it is next to the Barberini metro which is where usually stop to Trevi and the more it is normal to go through there at some point. It is one of the most important sculptures of Bernini representing Dios Triton up about dolphins with a conch shell from which the water comes out.

  • Beautiful Triton fountain in the middle of the piazza. It's a great place for a cool photo, as well as a refreshing place to sit while waiting, as you can sit on the surrounding bars and feel the splashing water.
  • Another masterpiece fountain in Rome. Full of pure drinkable water
  • Very beautiful Bernini's fountain to watch.
  • A quiet square (compared to another famous fountain, Trevi) that has become the meeting point for groups and tours.
  • It's ok. Might as well check it out if you're passing nearby. I went around late morning. Judging from the pictures it is nicer to visit at night.

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.
