  fountain at pediment of obelisk

Favorite thing: Most of the public fountains pipe out drinkable water. Some are merely decorative (Piazza Navona), but dozens are meant to be used as drinking fountains, such as this one beside San Giovanni in Laterano. The obelisk it supports, one of fifteen throughout the city, is the highest in Rome.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
