People will crowd around this fountain as the splashing water will cool you down in the hot summer months. I even saw some people drinking the water. I would advise against that or wouldn’t personally do it but to each his own. Pictures from behind...More

This fountain can easily get overlooked as people are more interested in the Pantheon which is near it. The fountain was designed in 1575 and an obelisk was added later on.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
