We spent the afternoon in this area (visiting the Crypt of the Cappuchins and walking to the Pantheon), and so this fountain became a landmark for us (the Barberini Metro stop is nearby). It's a pretty cool sculpture, and I later found out it was by Bernini, my favorite sculptor. So, if you like Bernini, definitely stop by to see... More

Another one of Gian Lorenzo Bernini's masterpieces located right in the busy Piazza Barberini. Our hotel room overlooked this amazing fountain and I loved looking out every night hearing the water splashing and the people walking through the square. When walking up close it really is crafted beautifully.

good meeting point for getting around town, we stayed at a hotel within walking distance so the bus and underground transit were easy to reach from there

The fountain is nice, and the area is near some nice attractions (Crypt of Capuchins), and there is a really nice little tie shop where you can buy very nice, inexpensive silk ties for the men in your life. There is also plenty of food nearby.

Looks good. Easy to jump in to since all the restaurants in the area close around 1am. At least it isn't scaffolded up like the Trevi.

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. From here if you want .3 miles against traffic on Via Del Tritone you will get to the next or... More
