  • a beautiful fountain in a nice corner of Rome, wouldn't go there on purpose, but if you are in the area well worth a visit

  • An artistic treasure to behold, less well known to the masses but that has nothing to envy to the most known works of Rome.

  • Is one of the most beautiful fountains of Rome. It was designed by Giacomo della Porta and performed by Taddeo Landini, in 1588. Some attribute the creation to Rafael. The turtles that give name to the source, were added only in 1658, and are attributed to Bernini or Andrea Sacchi.

  • A truly magical place, close enough to the Pantheon and in the Jewish ghetto. Go there in a night stroll (it's safe).
  • We alway have to pass the beautiful fountain with the turtles to really arrived in Rome. The turtles were not planned from the start. But after several decades without, someone got the idea of ​​the turtles - good idea.
  • My favourite piazza and fountain in Rome. Small, often quiet. Take note - 3 of the nymphs are the same, but one is a boy - sadly, a boy who fell from a window on the piazza. The fountain was built in his honour. The turtles were added later.
  • A small charmig fountain in the hart of Rom. Close to a café and if you love hot and spicy food, there is a Peperita store nearby. Highly recommended
  • Hidden gem in the heart of time, can be quiet but attractive.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
