This is where my wife and I had gelato 3 of the 4 nights we did in Rome. Not crowded, beautiful Fountain in Piazza Barberini, right off the metro on its own little island. Friendly young crowd hanging out and not all PDA like it is at the Spanish Steps. Was my favorite fountain of the trip, for that reason.

This certainly made up for the Trevi Fountain being enclosed in scaffolding. A beautiful little fountain which was a welcomed sight on a scorching hot afternoon.

This is a very beautiful fountain. From here you can take beautiful pictures. Since this fountain is not as popular as other fountain here in Rome you can take your time and take beautiful pictures with your family or friends.

I enjoyed sitting in the square at night facing upon this lovely fountain. Not terribly spectacular, but lovely location.

Rome is a city of fountains. This one definitely stands out by its location in the middle of roundabout. Such a shame it's enclosed. Even worse is it's great emptiness, no bench, no even a tree, only concrete.

Seriously, Bernini. Why is all of your stuff outside and subject to corrosion?! But that's besides the point. Gorgeous fountain, nice plaza, lots of traffic, fair amount of people.

It always amazes me how much there is to see just walking around Rome and this is one of those things. It was very beautiful and awe inspiring.
