    One of my favorite fountains in Rome. I really loved the monument here, the detail in the sculpture work is really nice. I also love the bronzed color. It's a great piece to photograph.

    It's a great place to spot tourists, that Piazza Barberini. Located in an island in the middle of the street, it's located right above the Barberini Metro stop. The Fontana del Tritone e Fontana delle Api sits in its center, visible from all around. While it may be overshadowed as an attraction by the nearby Fontana di Trevi, it's still a convenient and worthwhile visit.

    One of the must visits for Bernini fans. Down the street (Via Barberini) from Santa Maria della Vittoria (which houses Bernini's Ecstasy of St. Teresa).

Description

The Fountain of Triton and the Fountain of the Bees were both sculpted by famed artist Bernini. Bernini had as a patron the Pope Urban VIII, who came from the wealthy Barberini family. The pope commissioned Bernini to construct the two fountains in the plaza in front of his family's palace, and provide water to the public from a recently restored aqueduct.
