  • Especially on a sunny day. Best viewed in full sunlight IMHO and difficult to photograph thanks to the large amount of foot and motorised traffic.  more »
  • It's a shame that traffic isn't noticed. Machines run around like any roundabout

  • Close to the train station and museums this is a nice functioning fountain in a traffic roundabout. Nice and recommended  more »

  • The Fountain of the Naiads (Fontana delle Naiadi) is a nice fountain arrangement in the centre of traffic clogged Piazza della Repubblica in Rome. While the piazza itself leaves much to be desired due to the vehicle traffic and noise, this fountain is actually nice to see . Here you can see a multiple level fountain that was originally created n 1880. The various nude Naiads (nymphs) were added in 1901 by Mario Rutelli. They represent the Waters (Lakes, Rivers, Oceans and Underground Waters) and are featured along with a allegorical creatures. The fountain is anchored by a larger centre figure, which seems to be a fisherman wrestling with a large fish.  Overall, this is a neat fountain to see in Rome. However, its location makes it somewhat less appealing to visit. If you are in the Termini area, it is worth having a look as you pass by the piazza in between sightseeing endeavours. Just be mindful of the heavy traffic that can be found at this roundabout piazza if you choose to cross over to the centre area where the fountain is located. Show
  • Busy but pretty good
  • Gorgeous fountain forming the centre of the Republic square.... surrounded by the St. Mary basilica and multiple stores... One of the busiest crossings in Rome.
  • This roundabout and fountain are the pattern for roundabout in Poland in Warsaw - Rondo Zbawiciela.
  • This is a beautiful, large and refreshing fountain, with interesting statues all around. It was originally commissioned by Pope Pio IX in 1870 and it was completed in 1888. Originally there were four chalk lions designed by Alessandro Guerrieri. These were then replaced in 1901 with sculptures of the Naiads by Mario Rutelli, a sculptor from Palermo, Sicily. Getting to the fountain might be tricky, as it’s located in the middle of a very busy roundabout. There is a pedestrian crossing by the church, but keep in mind that it doesn’t mean cars will stop for you.
