“isolated fountain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

Its a long trip from the Duomo to the Fontana di Nettuno, just a statue and a small fountain. Nothing special. Good to take a picture saying you were there.

“Beautiful sculpture and area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2011

La Fontana di Nettuno (Fountain of Neptune) is a really beautiful sight if you get a chance to visit it (it is a little further north than the main attractions of Messina, such as the Duomo, Campanile, Teatro, etc). It is located at the north end of a lovely park plaza, and depicts the god Neptune blessing the city of Messina. It was created by Giovanni Montorsoli, the same sculptor who created the Fountain of Orion near the Duomo.
