Attractions near the Kennedy Hotel
Fountain of the Four Rivers
The Romans celebrated and rejoiced in the power of water more than any other culture and Rome is consequently bursting with pretty, historical fountains. The monumental Four Rivers fountain, one of Rome's most beautiful, is a 17th-Century Bernini masterpiece commissioned by Pope Innocenzo X.
The magnificent centrepiece of the Piazza Navona, this huge fountain depicts the four river gods from four continents, representing the Nile in Africa, the Danube in Europe, the Ganges in Asia and the Rio de la Plata in the Americas. Take time to wander around the fountain and appreciate Bernini's spectacular sculptures. It's hard not to gaze in awe at the ancient Egyptian obelisk towering above the gods.
Santa Maria in Travestere
Prepare to be dazzled by the breathtaking interiors of one of Rome's oldest churches. Dating back to 340 AD, this basilica has an austere facade with a 12th-Century campanile, but inside it's teeming with historical treasures including magnificent 12th-Century gilded mosaic artwork that leaves most people in awe. A number of these pieces of art are by renowned artist Pierre Cavallini.
You may be lucky enough to visit during a choir practice. The enchanting hallowed verses magnify the ancient beauty of this special historical church.
