Hidden in the backs streets is this quirky fountain, what makes it different is water is spouting out of a cask, we like its simplicity, (you want a drink here, have some out of my cask).

Searching in the internet I discovered a great history behind this fountain, but I believe in the summer would be more fun use the fountain to drink potable water and refresh yourself. The art and the marble notch is remarkable although the evidence of time...More

FONTANA DEL FACCHINO is an awesome and funny little fountain we found as we were heading to the wonderful Trinity Irish Pub. It's a funny little statue of a Porter with a barrel ( wine or beer ? ) with water dripping out of the...More

We used Google maps to plot a walk for us from Patheon to Piazza Barberini and luckily the route led through Via Lata. This intriguing fountain is set in the wall of the Banco di Roma. Apparently the fountain was created around 1590. There's something...More

Rome is an amazing city - it seems like there is a surprise around every corner.... this fountain is one of those surprises. I wouldn't say it is a highlight of a visit to Rome, but it adds to the overall experience.

This amusing fountain is one of the famous "talking statues" of Rome (the statues "talked" when people posted letters on them, anonymously criticizing the Pope, local big shots, etc.) The Porter is just off Via del Corso (on a little alley), and he is a...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
