The glorious city of Rome is adorned with spectacular fountains. Some fountains support obelisks and others anchor famous piazzas. The fountains are built in different styles: Classical, Medieval, Baroque and Neoclassical. They run the gamut from simple to sublime. Many of the fountains have been conceived by Bernini.

The dramatic fountains of Rome host a cast of interesting allegorical figures that generally spew water from their mouths. Many Roman popes reconstructed ruined Roman acqueducts and built new  fountains that generated a host of magnificent Baroque structures.
