This blog has been created by Selene, Alessandra, Rita, Stefano and Silvia, students of the SSML “Gregorio VII” (Advanced School of Modern Languages for Interpreters and Translators) in Rome. We thought about this project in preparation for the final exam of Tourism Sociology; furthermore, “Lefontaneromane” is directly involved in the “SSML Gregorio VII Turismi 2010” project, aimed at promoting and increasing the value of tourism in our territory.

 The initiative is supported by ASTRAMBIENTE (Scientific Association  for  the Preservation of  Environmental Resources) and by Professor Adriana Bisirri, Director of  Studies of the SSML “Gregorio VII”.

 This project has its roots in our curiosity about Rome’s history and culture and its aim is to draw the attention of tourists (and of Rome’s citizens!) not only on Rome’s most famous and evocative monuments, but also on its hidden corners, precious and rich in history alike.

Persuaded of the importance of this idea, we have decided to organize a tour around Rome’s fountains (and much more!) with various routes, to satisfy every demand.


 Would you like to discover some of the most beautiful and evocative fountains in Rome?

Join our guided tours and we’ll take you to visit not only some of Rome’s most famous  fountains, but also a few of the hidden and less known ones! Why don’t we find out something more about them?


 Fontana della Dea Roma ( The Goddess Rome Fountain) located in Capitol Square;

 Fontana delle Tartarughe ( The Tortoise Fountain) located in Piazza Mattei;

 Fontana del Facchino (The Porter Fountain) located in Via Lata;

 Fontana del Pantheon (The Pantheon Fountain) located in Piazza della Rotonda;

 Fontana del Babuino (The Baboon Fountain) located in Via del Babuino;
