Rome is… a Queen Bee

I love the water. I love the fountains of water features, ergo, I love Rome.
Because in this city, you will find many fountains, as in no other city.

Decorative elements, the fountains of Rome, from the most famous to the drinking fountains, are scattered throughout the city.
Each has a story and every design element has a meaning.

Nothing was left to chance, as the FONTANA DELLE API, the Fountain of the Bees, one of my favorite small fountains, in Piazza Barberini.
It has been  a tribute to Pope Urban VIII and to the family emblem, precisely the bees.

The Latin inscription informed that this fountain, was a gift of the Pope, and the water was available to the people and animals.

But surely you will not miss a visit to the Trevi Fountain to throw a coin behind ….
