This fountain is situated in the Piazza Barberini and is one of the smaller fountains in Rome. It was designed by Bernini and at the time of our visit in January it had a significant amount of ice on it which made it very interesting.

This fountain is designed by Bernini for the Barberini family and is situated in the homonymous square in Rome. It is pretty, indeed, but is going through major rework, so you cannot see it in its grandour.

Unfortunately, in our visit in April fountain was under repair. The fountain itself was designed by Bernini and is very beautiful.

Minor water spot, but nice to walk by, when you are wondering around this pretty old city. Not sure I would need to see it again, but pretty to pas by.

This is an interesting fountain that dates from the 17th century that was used to supply water to the city. It was even more interesting when we visited in January as it was covered in a lot of ice. The fountain is smaller than most of the other fountains in the city but is worth looking at if you are... More

This is a fountain that seems to have no importance at all. But it is one of the Bernini's most great works and she rise in the middle of Barberini square reminding us that even beauty can survive in the middle of the caos and the smog of a city.

Not a lot to say really, this is a pretty fountain and is just lovely in the evening, as it is well lit and looks so nice... A nice place surrounded with nice bars and restaurants... 😊

Most beautiful at night. Central to the circle, and the circle is the hub to a number of major streets, including the Via Veneto, a great street for shopping. The fountain has Bernini's signature symbol of 3 Bumble Bees.

This is a very nice fountain and Rome seems to be filled with them. It was entirely designed and sculpted by Bernini in 1643. It was only a 10 minute walk from Trevi Fountain and is well worth a look. You might want to do Trevi second though as the Bernini is much smaller in comparison however there will be... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
