This easily missed fountain located along side Largo del Colonnato, was completed in 1927 and is made of travertine. 3 basins, each catching water from 2 Vatican keys. Atop the fountain are 4 tiaras. Good place to refill your water bottle.

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
