10:00 pm: On your way home for the night, take a moment to admire the whimsical turtle fountain that is tucked away on a quiet piazza.
The most beautiful fountain of all of Rome in the heart of the Jewish ghetto, a must-see.
The Turtle Fountain is a fountain of the late Italian Renaissance, located in Piazza Mattei, in the jewish district of Rome. It was built between 1580 and 1588 by the architect Giacomo della Porta and the sculptor Taddeo Landini. The bronze turtles around the upper basin were added in either 1658 or 1659 when the fountain was restored.
The fountain is wonderful and the square is lively and full of small restaurants!
