The same was with me. I have noticed something curious and a bit unusual. And only later surfing TripAdvisor I realised that it was the fountain. I wouldn't say it is a "must-see", but it is an interesting piece of architecture and history, even though...More

It is not well preserved for a roman fountain. There are not signs for it, so you can easily miss it and just walk by.

Unless you know beforehand, you could easily mistake this as a neglected modern item, not a piece of history. Never running, no signage to explain its history .... very sad.
