65 things to doin Rome
The masterpiece of Italian baroque truly deserves being one of the most beautiful fountain in the world - gorgeousness, majesty and magnificence.
Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, Rome
There won't be any difficulties to recognize the Fountain of the Four Rivers (Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi) on Piazza Navona by high Roman obelisk in the center. Four huge men figures around the obelisk personify four rivers: the Indian Ganges, the American Rio de la Plata, the African Nile and the European Danube.

At first Borromini was charged with the design of the fountain, but in the end it was passed to his competitor Lorenzo Bernini. At the beginning of 1650s master Bernini created the sketch of the construction and his apprentices put it into practice.
