Built in the early 1600, the fountain was originally located on the other side of the tiber during widening of the banks it was removed stored and later erected in its current location within Piazza Trilussa. worth a visit during a walk of the area.
While passing over Ponte Sisto we came across the very impressive Fontana Del Ponte Sisto and although by no means is it a must see attraction if your in the area it's still a nice site to visit.

Bridge leading into travestere. It's a nice bridge but that's all. It overlooks dirty greenish water. Entire bridge has vendors all along it. I mean I guess it fits with the area and brings the charm to the area. Fountain is just across from it....More

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
