There are always lots of people admiring this fountain and as soon as you get up close you can see why in the reliefs that encircle it. Many if not most have been restored/replaced but they are still superb and some of the originals are in the museum nearby.
At night the steps nearby are alive with young people chatiing and passing the time together while the passegiata weaves around infront of them before returning down the length of the main thoroughfare. Simply beautiful and beautifully simple.

As with many fountains in Italy, this one too is impressive. It's in the middle of the piazza so as you approach it you can't miss it.

I loved. Its was one of the best things I saw in the city. You can take nice pictures with a very good light.

It may not actually be unique, but I've certainly never seen another like it. The scale alone is amazing, but it fits perfectly with its surrounds.

Very pretty centrepiece in the town, a great spot to sit and watch people go by
