Fiumi Fountain

Rome, Italy
4.9 / 75
The Fountain of the Four Rivers is a sculptural group with deep symbolic meaning. In the middle of the composition stands an obelisk symbolizing the power of the Pope. Around the obelisk are sculptures representing the rivers of four continents.

Great work of art by Bernini. Full of symbolism about the papic dominion over 4 continents. Each statue a river and a continent. Nile for Africa, Ganges for Asia, Danube for Europe, Rio de la Plata for America. They all bring their riches to Rome...

You must definitely visit this square and this fountain in particular. It is beautiful and it can't be admired by pictures alone. Also, if the weather permits, there's really good gelato at the edge of the square.

A beautiful moderate sized fountain in a more open and less crowded square in the evening. There are a few restaurants around the square. The fountain looks other worldly lit up at night.
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 must see of course while in Rome. It looks big online or in pictures but it's in a tight place inbetween buildings thus there is a crowd there. Suggest going early in the morning if you want some room.

This is a peace of art! The meaning of that is the four rivers of the world if you like the four corners of the statue.
Stephanie Reuss
Beautiful fountain, of course! Watch for peddlers who foist thier goods on you. There's many tourists, so a good picture may be hard to capture or have time to wait for the perfect time.

An amazing piece of art. I suggest to read its description on wikipedia to interpret its statues and its political meaning. Beside that, it's charming and relaxing.
