The crowds looking for the angle the sculptor sought to defy the prudish (or envious) Pope aren’t so daunting, but beware of pickpockets.

What else can one say? Stand and admire. The guide book notes its controversial history...... ( It was considered very risqué).

It's very nice, get there early as the tourists love to walk into your photos. My wife pointed the nudity as usual... it's a fountain with naked figures.

Next to the piazza Maggiore is the statue of Neptune on his own square, of course. This fountain is very impressive and mermaids surrounding him. A very good spot to take pictures.

The Fontana was built in 1566 by Tommaso Laureti and is located on Piazza Magiore. The nearby Sanctuary of Santa Maria della Vita has an interesting museum dedicated to the fountain.

It is on piazza maggiore. Just on the left of the tourist information. We were lucky that it was not that crowded because it would be hard to take photo of it

It is definitely worth a visit. It is really nice fountain. My little boy was amazed with it, as he is a big fun of Roman and Greek mythology and it was a big adventure to see all the perfect statues and fountains.
