A Tourist in Rome - Viminale Fountain

Location:In Piazza del Viminale, about 7 short blocks west from Termini train station.
Metro:Termini
Time:10 minutes
Cost:Free
Hours:Viewable at any time

The Viminale Fountain has a rather large, very shallow rectangular bowl at the top from which water gushes and overflows into a pool slightly below ground level. The bowl is supported by a rectangular base, decorated with bas-reliefs depicting the symbol of the three surrounding mountains, and the She-Wolf. When I visited, no water was flowing.
