This fountain was not on our itinerary, but we walked right past it. With fountains around every corner in Rome, not all of them can be spectacular.

This nondescript fountain is located within a very small scruffy square with a tourist office on one side. Although it pales into insignificance compared to the many grand structures nearby it’s still worthy of few moments before moving on.

This is a teeny piazza off to one side of the larger Piazza Venezia area, behind a little park which itself is behind a large bus stop area. Not much to see, but it has a pretty fountain.

This fountain is simple and lovely. But do look closely; it has been flowing for so long there are mineral deposits that are like stalactites in caves which actually make it really cool.

This fountain that most people just walk past is actually a 16th century fountain. It is a double layered basin shaped fountain located close to the Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II. The basin's lip or edge where the water spills over seemed to have heavy...More
