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.

Fontana del Ponte Sisto is a 17th century creation. In fact it was constructed in order to provide an adequate water supply to the Vatican Gardens! Of course others benefited as well. Worth a look.

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
