For Shame

There could be no more dramatically named fountain in all of Europe than the Fountain of Shame. Odds are you'll never encounter a more blush-inducing collection of nude statues. Cover the eyes of your children or be prepared to answer uncomfortable questions. Fontana della Vergogna is best downed in one quick visual shot; in Europe it's still considered weird to stand staring at nude statues for too long.

Utrip Tips

*The fountain is surrounded by a large fence to keep graffiti artists from ruining it, but you can get a good view by climbing steps up to nearby buildings
