A mighty statue and the one featured in the Angels and Demons Illuminati movie from 2009. Fabulous craftsmanship and a must see. Lots of places to grab a drink nearby too and people watch :-)

All the sculptures are fantastic in Rome. Apparently there are over 100 fountains in Rome alone. they all have their own charm and this one is no different.

If your tired from your tour stop here and relax by this fountain. Close by are some restaurants if you want a bite and just people watch. Bring your camera because you could never describe the beauty or detail that went into making this fountain.

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
