Many shops for the 'fading brick and mortar' shopping experience with interesting archetecture and lots of food options. Parking appears ample, but then we weren't there on a busy weekend, but there is lots of it. Nice stroll along the river.

All the fountains are beautiful around the City of Fountains but this one is especially great. Glad the centerpiece was returned after its short loss!

Very cool fountain in the middle of a small green space. We parked a few blocks away and walked to get pictures. A nice stroll in a beautiful area.

I love Italy and the fountains here are reminiscent of the magical grandeur of Rome. You will feel like you left the States and every photo is frame worthy!
