  • Nom I shock: How can it be so special about a tiny little square whose only attraction is a fountain with some turtle poised? And in fact it's not special, it's very special and absolutely lovely, candidate, and I'm not kidding, "minor" great widening of Rome, and at best loosely monumental fountain. Because the baby turtles, cone everything in that 16th century fountain, are a refinement and lightness that they cannot remain indifferent, and anyway, who considers only attraction, the vast and still somewhat mysterious residence Mattei opens behind the Fountain a fleeting glimpse of her yard, home of the powerful business family. The boundary between the ghetto and Campitelli, unique areas to be explored; almost a shame that the bar with tables for stopping are few;

  • This fountain is located somewhat inconspicuous, still worth a visit, because it is a fountain by Bernini! The turtles, which were processed with as a motif in the well are very striking here, which is unique and well worth a visit.

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.
