Fountains & Obelisks & Squares (Fontane & Obelischi & Piazze) in Rome - Part 1 (daytime)

by Leonardo Feccini January. 04, 2017 1030 views

Rome is extremely famous for its beautiful and world-wide known squares, where you can usually find either amazing fountains or imponent obelisks... and many times even both of them. 

Today (actually it was yesterday, 3rd January hahaha) I had a nice walk around some of my favorite areas here in Rome,  Piazza Navona (with its beautiful 3 sets of fountains), Piazza della Rotonda (with the amazing Pantheon in it) and Piazza di Trevi (where it is located the most majestic and beautiful fountain I have ever seen in my life, the renowned Fontana di Trevi). 

I also saw many churches and nice streets during my walking process to go from one of these 'piazze' (plural of 'piazza' [square]) to another, but these churches will have their moment in a specific post for themselves.

I also went through two other nice squares, where you cannot find any fountain, but colossal obelisks instead, and they are also going to feature this post. 


So, enough of this little chat and let's get started with all the pictures I took and selected for this post. 

Have a nice trip here with me, and I hope you'll enjoy it! :)


Fisrt of them all, my favorite piazza (square) here in Rome: Piazza Navona
