It has a fence around it. Maybe it's pretty but the water flow but the water flow is enough to make you seek out a urologist. COULD MAKE A GROWN MAN CRY.

You walk past this to get to most old town attractions and sometimes forget to stop. Not spectacular but still very interesting and worth a look.

Beautiful “Fontana”. Localized in central Etruscan city it is a monumental medieval fountain made by white and pink stones.

We arrived in Perugia and headed to Piazza IV Novembre. The Fontana Maggiore was nice though it is quite average compared to the many Fontana that we have seen throughout Italia.

The Fontana is a major highlight in this piazza as well as the church it is near. A gathering spot for families, friends and visitors.

A pretty fountain bathed in October sun. In a lovely square where the architecture is typically Italian.

Now that the Kimia laboratory has solved the problem of water infiltrations, the Fontana Maggiore in Perugia has a new caracter! It is so beautiful, with all the charming small statues that I mostly suggest a visit!

In the middle of piazza 4 November, just in the center of Perugia, stands this extraordinary fountain. Take a few moments to explore the figures and other carvings that are around it . Played an important role in supplying water to the city . Unfortunately...More
