"Piazza Barberini: Fontana del Tritone" Fontana del Tritone – Triton Fountain Tip by martin_nl

  Fontana del Tritone on Piazza Barberini
by martin_nl
 
 

My favourite fountain in Rome is the Fontana del Tritone in the middle of Piazza Barberini. Designed by Bernini it depictsTriton with a shell on his head from which the water powerfully sprays into the air. Triton sits on another shell which is kept in balance by the tails of four dolphins.

Address: Piazza Barberini
Directions: Take the metro to Barberini.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
