Fountain of Neptune is one of the fountain in Piazza Navona. The structure features Neptune fighting an octopus and surrounded by the sculptures of nymphs. Quite a good background for photo-taking particularly if you are having your meal in one of the restaurants nearby. Recommended.

Piazza Navona's northern fountain is another interesting sights in Rome. It depicts Neptune fighting against an octopus. The sculptures are very delicate.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
