Fountain of Tripode of the Villa d’Este, Tivoli

On the terrace above the gardens of the “Villa d’Este” in Tivoli we find the Tripod Fountain. This fountain is a replica of an ancient Roman fountain found today in Paris, France, specifically in the Louvre Museum.

The marble bowl of this fountain rests on a central column with three pilasters, hence its name “tripod.” This fountain is located on this spot since 1930 when it replaced the Fountain of Seahorses that had been transferred from the Villa Adriana.
