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
Fontana del Facchino/Fountain of the Porter is a lovely little fountain, which could be easily overlooked, or dismissed. The fountain is located in Via Lata, just around the corner from Via del Corso and forms part of a wall belonging to Palazzo de Carolis, which...More
One of the things I enjoy the most about Rome is all the Piazza's with interesting sculpture's and fountains. This one is of a porter holding a barrel with water coming out of the barrel. It's in between the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon so...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
drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
