“One of Rome's Most Beautiful Fountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The "Four Rivers Fountain" is second only to Rome's Trevi Fountain in its importance and beauty. it's especially spectacular at night. Sitting in the center of Piazza Navona, the fountain dominates the area. At night it is surrounded by visual artists and performance artists as well as guys hawking the latest toy. Grab a table at one of the (pricey) cafes/restaurants that surround the piazza, or take in the atmosphere while you enjoy gelato.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The Fountains of the Four Rivers was sculpted by the famous Bernini and is located in Piazza Navona. Each character represents a famous river from the continents knew back then (Nile, Danube, Ganges and Rio de la Plata). The place is filled with tourists, locals and street vendors.
