This struck us as quite a fun sight in Rome, with the distinctive fish shapes supporting the rest of the fountain. No where near as busy as the Trevi fountain but was well worth seeing

This was very near our hotel. It might look less grand compared to other fountains. This marble sculpture located in Piazza Barberini is of Triton, the sea god, that was carved by Bernini.

A beautiful Statue of Triton in the middle of a large public square (Piazza Barberini) which was sculpted by Bernini. May be considered a poor cousin to other well known Fountains but in my view holds its own ! Well worth a visit and a...More

This is one of the best spots in Rome! Even with all the people there I felt transformed to a different time! If in Rome you must do this!

Nice little fontaine with many shops and eating places around it. Heavy traffic, so much noise around it.

One of the lesser known fountains in Rome is the Fontana del Tritone, located in Piazza Barberini. This is another great place for a photo since it’s not very crowded, but it’s not worth lingering here long. The statue is worthy of appreciation.
