Although the fountain is interesting, I would not rate it highly. The square is beautiful, but as of now the fountain is shrouded and under repair. Check before you undertake a visit with high hopes.

Unfortunately the fountain is undergoing restoration and access is extremely limited to guided tours at certain times. Did not see due to protective barrier around fountain.

This fountain is being refurbished so currently this is a tarpaulin covered eyesore. In Rome the restoration if the Trinita dei Monti above the Spanish Steps resulted in a very imaginative canvas on the tarpaulin- not so here sadly. Having seen how imagination can be...More
