About Fontana dei Fiumi

You want to see something that's equal parts stunning and historical? Look no further than Fontana dei Fiumi, or the "Fountain of the Rivers" in English. This fountain is located in the Piazza Navona in Rome, and it's a real jaw-dropper. It was built in the late 16th century by the famous artist Gianlorenzo Bernini and it's considered one of the masterpieces of his early career. The fountain depicts the four major rivers of the four continents known at the time: the Danube, Ganges, Nile and Rio de la Plata. It's a real beauty to see.

The best time to see the fountain would be during the day, when the sun is shining and the water is sparkling. The square it's located in, Piazza Navona, is also worth a visit during the day, as it's surrounded by charming cafes, gelaterias and souvenir shops.

You can also visit the fountain at night, when the square and the fountain are lit up, providing a romantic and very beautiful atmosphere. But I would recommend visiting it during the day if you can, as the details and the sculptures are more visible during the daylight.

No matter when you go, Fontana dei Fiumi is a must-see for any history buff or anyone who appreciates stunning architecture and art.
