Stop for a photo op at Fontana del Tritone, a beautiful 17th-century fountain in the middle of Piazza Barberini. Don't forget to lower the camera and really get a good look at the statue in the middle: the muscular, larger-than-life character of Triton supported by dolphin fin tails and blowing on a conch shell. The dramatic attraction celebrates the restored Acqua Felice aqueduct and provides water from the source. Before you visit Rome, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • Beautiful sight at night; not as majestic as the Trevi fountain, yet it has its own charm especially at night. Worth a visit if you are in staying at a hotel in close proximity. The charm lies in the fact that it was made from a single marble rock. I haven’t seen anything like it in the US.
  • Tritone is in a decent area, close to lots of shops. It's a bit touristy though, so prices are inflated a bit. Lots of other, better sites and neighborhoods but if you're there it is a beautiful fountain.
