  • Originally the fountain was made to serve as a source of potable water before the age of indoor plumbing. The four rivers are represented by the four marble gods with flowers and wildlife around them....  more »

  • We walked from our hotel to see this exquisitely beautiful fountain. You may see several other fountains, and we saw 7 total. We liked this one and the Trevi fountain the best. It gets very crowded so get there in the early hours to get some cool pics.
  • Amazing fountain. Stunning masterpice with and Oblisk in the center. Beautiful place to hang out with family/friends and spend some time.
