Just a few blocks from the center of town, down a few interesting side streets, sits this small fountain. Locals use it to rinse their hands or to take a drink. Nice visit for dog lovers.

This fountain was originally Lions but when you are made in the 16th century you do show some wear. It's a quick walk by to see, then have some of the best gelato at Arco Baleno and then a coffee at Michaels bar.

Thank marie w
