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. Plan my Rome trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Situated in the centre of Piazza Barberini is the Fontana del Tritoni built in 1643, in which the marine god Triton, supported by four dolphins, sprouts a jet of water from a shell. The fountain, made in travertine, is by the famous architect Lorenzo Bernini.

  • This fountain is located in Barberini Square. It was designed and built in 1642 on the order of Pope Urban IV. Performer: the brilliant Bernini. Material from which the fountain is made - travertine, from which in Rome made a lot of beautiful architectural works. Recommend.

  • Vakker fontene, som virkelig kommer til sin rett på kveldene når den er lyst opp og vannet blit nesten grønt.  more »

  • Beautiful sight at night; not as majestic as the Trevi fountain, yet it has its own charm especially at night. Worth a visit if you are in staying at a hotel in close proximity. The charm lies in the fact that it was made from a single marble rock. I haven’t seen anything like it in the US.
  • Tritone is in a decent area, close to lots of shops. It's a bit touristy though, so prices are inflated a bit. Lots of other, better sites and neighborhoods but if you're there it is a beautiful fountain.
  • The sar lovely place similar to others but fairly different in its description
  • One more extraordinary piece of architecture you must visit when in rome.
  • Beautiful like many fountains in Rome, but not as much as trevi. Quite simple fountain and not at all crowded.
