Today, Rome has more than 2000 fountains. These vary from the monumental fountains to the tiny. Here are 20 of the most beautiful fountains in Rome.
The Trevi Fountain is located at a junction of three roads and was one of the original sources of water in Ancient Rome.
This fountain in Piazza Mattei features bronzed turtles jumping off its top level. The original fountain was designed in the 1580s by Giacomo Della Porta.
The fountain was commissioned by Pope Urban VII and was created by Pietro Bernini and his son Gian Lorenzo.
The four fountains were commissioned by Pope Sixtus V and were installed between 1588 and 1593.
The fountain was installed in 1927. However, it was moved to Piazza sell Emporio in 1935 due to unstable soil conditions in Piazza Testaccio.
