Fontana del Tritone, Rome

(4.2/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This is a very nice fountain and Rome seems to be filled with them. It was entirely designed and sculpted by Bernini in 1643. It was only a 10 minute walk from Trevi Fountain and is well worth a look....  more »
  • Misunderstood, but beautiful fountain that enriches piazza Barberini. By Bernini, the triton on top of the pedestal. Unfortunately it is an area of heavy traffic and people pass by often without even looking at it.

  • The fountain by Bernini is at the center of the square in high traffic area and so don't want too a visit. Beautiful but little known and visited, when other fountains are besieged by tourists here sometimes is desert. Shame as still very nice and important from an artistic point of view.

  • 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.
