  • On the way from the Gianicolo down in the city you will pass at the extraordinary well, which is really magnificent. The road above is also a beautiful vantage point on ROM, which can be combined well with a visit of the fountain.

  • Shortly after a wonderful ride for Gianicolo, down the via Garibaldi, we find the Fontana dell'Acqua Paola which impressed us a lot by your architectural beauty and color of the water. Is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen in Rome.

  • Beautiful monumental fountain located on the Hill of Gianicolo, Trastevere, from which you can see fantastic views of Rome was built in 1612 to signal the end of the aqueduct of Acqua Paola by Pope Pablo V

  • The fountain is atop a hill in the south-eastern part of Trastevere. It's quite a climb but worth doing, since you can also visit the piazza Garibaldi and Gianicolo
  • Impressive fountain with a great view. Makes you wish you could swim in it, although it's probably for its best that you can't.
  • The fountain is really beautiful with clear blue water. You need to climb some steps but it's worth it.
  • The fountain (or large fountain) of the Acqua Paola is located in Rome, at the point where the Via Garibaldi reaches the summit of the Gianicolo, just before Porta San Pancrazio. This is the terminal exhibition of the "Acqua Paola" aqueduct, restored between 1608 and 1610 by Pope Paolo V. It is the "fontanone" to which Antonello Venditti refers in the song "Roma Capoccia" (1972).
  • Stumbled across this place while walking late one night. Had no idea it was here. Beautiful fountain and view.
