Helpfully on the bus tour, impressive statue of Triton and dolphins. There are so many impressive fountains in Rome but this one stood out.

I wanted to see this because it inspired part of Respighi's Fountains of Rome. A nice little fountain at a crossroads near a metro station, so super easy to add to your walking trip in central Rome

Another great masterpiece by Bernini, well worth seeing, but you take you life in your own hands crossing the roads to get to it during busy times.

Make a wish in the fountain like every one else does. This fountain was our guide to turn left to the hotel on the way home at night.

The fountain is a beautiful masterpiece and worth a visit. Great detail and since it is small and not as busy it can be appreciated up close. However the plaza has no shade and no seating available, making it uncomfortable to visit for more than a few minutes.

The 17th century Fontana del Tritone, which was designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, is located in Piazza Barberini. It is in the middle of a busy junction so take care. Definitely worth visiting on the way to or from Santa Maria della Vittoria, which is nearby. The fountain is of the minor sea god Triton, son of Poseidon, who is... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
