  • This is one of those site we had seen in the movie Inferno. It's stunning and well kept. Like most places throughout the city it is picturesque.
  • A worthy fountain to visit on any trip to Rome! In the summer there is little shade and many people so have your sunscreen and water! As a bonus there is one of Romes great water spigots in this square to allow you to fill up your water bottle!!
