Taken in Rome in Piazza Navona.Piazza Navone is one of the most famous and arguably the most beautiful of Rome's many squares. The large and lively square features no less than three magnificent fountains.
Fontana di Nettuno (Neptune fountain)
Fontana del Moro
The central and largest fountain is the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers). It was constructed between 1647 and 1651 on request of the Pope Innocent X.
The design of the fountain was first commissioned to Borromini, but it was ultimately handed to his rival Bernini. The fountain features four figures, each representing a river from a different continent - the Nile, Ganges, Danube and Rio della Plata.
Piazza Santa Maria della Pace
San Luigi dei Francesi -The Church of St. Louis of the French
