We passed this lovely fountain on the way to the Trevi Fountain. It is beautiful but modest compared to others in Rome. There are some great shops, cafes etc in this area.

The fountain of Neptune's son, Triton, is located in a crowded square, where the car traffic can be annoying sometimes. This is a nice place to stop and take a picture, admiring the work of the statue in the fountain.

take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming
