The biggest and most famous fountain of Rome. Trevi fountain was built to celebrate the restoration of an ancient roman aqueduct called Acqua Vergine (Vergin Water) which was built in 19BC.

In 1651 Gian Lorenzo Bernini built this amazing fountain to support the 16 meters tall egyptian obelisk standing on top of it. The square (Piazza Navona) hides the Stadium of Domitian 5 meters below the ground.
This fountain, also known as Fontanone (the bigh Fountain), is a monumental fountain located on the Janiculum hill. It marks the end of the Acqua Paola aqueduct restored by Pope Paul V. This fountain was inspirational for the later Trevi Fountain.
