Fontana del Tritone, Rome

#176 of 2,607 in Things to do in Rome
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.

  • The place is not quite homely unfortunately because some traffic will take place. But you should look at yet the fountain, although here no break to sit can be inserted. Unless you sit on the edge of the fountain and keeps the feet in water, which can be quite pleasant in summer. Especially the fountain looks beautiful at night, when it is lit.

  • I went back to see her again after a few years and I must say that I appreciated again. A few meters from here, in the same square you can also see another work albeit less by the same author, the famous fountain of the bees. Maybe not the most beautiful Fountain designed by Bernini, but it's a shame anyway see it so abandoned in the icuria pollution especially in traffic. If you are a fan of bernini Council a visit to the fountain of the Moor and the fountain of the four rivers.

  • Refined composition, a Baroque work, become a little island in the traffic of today's Piazza Barberini, but not decreasing the charm.

  • 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
  • A quiet square (compared to another famous fountain, Trevi) that has become the meeting point for groups and tours.
  • Bernini's beautiful art
  • 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.
