“Not well upkept for such a well known landmark”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

The day I was their the fountain was shut of and there was trash in the water that was there. For the fountain being located in such a well known square of Rome and also being featured in the book "Angels and Demons" you would think that a little more care would go into the up keep of this fountain.

“Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi - Piazza Navona”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

This fountain a.k.a The Fountain of the Four Rivers was designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in 1651 for Pope Innocent.

The fountain is made of the famous travertine rocks!!

The fountain is made in reverence to the 4 river gods which is further adorned by an obelisk at the top of it all!! The four river are of the four continents : the Nile of Africa, the Danube of Europe, the Ganges of Asia, and the Río de la Plata of Americas!!!

A definite photo opportunity!!!

“The centerpiece of Piazza Navona”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

One of the most enjoyable nights we spent in Rome was having dinner and relaxing right in front of Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers in Piazza Navona. The whole piazza is lively with musicians, artists, and vendors. IMO the Four Rivers is every bit as magnificent as the Trevi Fountain. Though it is somewhat crowded it's nowhere near the crowds you see at the Trevi and it's just a much larger area so people can spread out a little more which makes it much more enjoyable. It is a very central spot so it also makes a great meeting point if you are wandering around the area.

Definitely see this masterpiece while in Rome. Piazza Navona is a feast for the senses.
