The fountain is in the square near the hotel BERNINI. The fountain is very beautiful both in the daytime and in the evening. The fountains are actually fascinating creations of man, and especially such as Fontana del Tritone.

It's Bernini's fontana del Tritone, whose God of the Sea gushes a high jet of water from a conch shell. Here was the Bernini's family's quarter; The Via Veneto is very near this fontana del Tritone. Very nice fountain.

You`ll be going right by here on your way to Trevi Fountain, the Borghese Gallery or Coliseum and if you`ve been in Rome a while you start to recognize certain peoples work. One of them is Bernini, and he is all over Rome and yes he was a genius with marble. Like I said you`ll be walking right by and... More

Beautiful, and so many pictures because you see something different each angle. This fountain feels more cozy, not as commercial as the larger ones.

We stumbled onto this nice fountain one evening while walking from Trevi on the way to the Spanish Steps. There were only a few people around and we stopped to hang out for a little while.

if you don't get run down by the traffic worth a close up visit. Not nearly as crowded as other Bernini masterpieces as the speeding cars,buses and cycles keep the crowds at bay

Fontana del Tritone is right next to the exit of Barberini Metro station on a large square next to a busy main road. It is not one of the main tourist attractions, but definitely worth a stop if on the way to the Barberini Gallery and Quattro Fontane.

After the extremely crowded Trevi Fountain visit, we trekked over to see this fountain as I love mermaids and bam King Triton is on display here. It's quite smaller than I expected but much more of a calming experience than Trevi. You can easily catch a taxi from here or get on the metro (underground) at the other corner of... More

While living in Roma, I would often brave the traffic to get to the center of this piazza and enjoy the fontana del tritone. It is a lovely little place in the middle of chaos.

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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.
