If one looked at the details of the sculpture of this fountain, it looks elegant and very beautiful. Worth taking time to admire the view, and see how the animals (horses, octopus, fish) and human forms have been so beautifully done.

It's beautiful and at night it wasn't at all crowded. Advice would be to go at night and do a walking tour of all the fountains as they are lit up and look spectacular (but no need to pay for a tour, it's easy to...More

Fountain of Neptune is one of the fountain in Piazza Navona. The structure features Neptune fighting an octopus and surrounded by the sculptures of nymphs. Quite a good background for photo-taking particularly if you are having your meal in one of the restaurants nearby. Recommended.

Piazza Navona's northern fountain is another interesting sights in Rome. It depicts Neptune fighting against an octopus. The sculptures are very delicate.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
