  • Pretty small fountain at the exit of the metro in the direction of Trevie. Complicated to photographed as middle of the road

  • The fountain of Berbini (1642-43) is located in the Centre of Piazza Barberini. The fountain shows the sea God Triton who kneels on a large clam worn/held up by the dolphins. A little history: Triton was according to Greek mythology, the son of the sea god Poseidon and Amphitrite havgudinnen (not to be confused with Aphrodite). Tritonene was the ocean's trompetblåsere, trumpets made of shell or conch shells. They blew in their shells in order to wear down the waves of the sea, or conversely, to blow up to the waves and the sea, but always on the command of Poseidon. When the Romans took to build fountains was Triton shapes a natural element.

  • Usually, by this fountain all pass by and he is very handsome. They can be enjoyed from the Cafe across the street, eating delicious Italian ice cream.

  • 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.
  • A quiet square (compared to another famous fountain, Trevi) that has become the meeting point for groups and tours.
  • Rome's full of fountains so idk how to feel about this
  • 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.
  • Lovely Triton Fountain sculpted by Bernini. Looks charming at night.
