This fountain was commissioned by Pope Gregory XIII and was erected in 1577. In 1830 he fountain was to be restored but was replaced by a smaller fountain featuring dolphins and lions heads. Pales in significance when compared to other fountains throughout the City.

Fontana In Piazza Colonna is a lovely fountain. It is another fountain, as some people might say, but each fountain has its own beauty. It's a 16th century construction and it is another celebration to water!

This is a lovely fountain with cute dolphins spouting water from their mouths, however the fountain was rather neglected when we visited and we could've easily missed it, had we not known it's suppose to be there.

It is a nice fountain rather close to all the other tourist attractions in the area. It is not the nicest fountain but if you are walking past it is worth taking a quick look.

Pretty fountain, designed by architect Giacomo Della Porta in the late 1500’s. It is simple yet elegant, with an interesting octagonal basin. A small, elevated basin of a dark golden color stands in the center, and there are dolphins that spout water at each end....More

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos,
goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross
paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the
very center of the city. Even though it has some of
the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle
Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque
parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty
face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural
