Walking the streets of Rome we seem to be on a find the Bernini sculptures tours. Compared to his other works this one seems quite plain in contrast. However, quite beautiful in its own right, we especially like the bees.

Not expecting to see this charming Bernini fountsin in the middle of a busy piazza. I was there to meet friends from the nearby embassy. This fountain is said to be Bernini's last work from 1644

It was surprising to find this fountain at Barberini Square. The design is unique but not really attractive. It survived 300+ years so it deserves some credit.

We found Berninis' Bee fountain hidden away and looking unloved which is really sad for such a beautiful fountain.

Bernini had quite the gift for detail and this fountain is no different. It very near the Capuchin Monastery so worth stopping to see it along the way. Unfortunately, there is a lot of construction nearby so it seems to be in a bit of...More

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
