Did you know that there are over two hundred fountains in Paris, and more than a hundred Wallace drinking fountains? Take a close look at the oldest fountain in Paris, the Renaissance Fontaine des Innocents, with its graceful nymphs, the most romantic one: the serene Medici Fountain, in the Luxemburg Gardens, the most exotic ones: the Fontaine du Fellah and the Fontaine du Palmier, commemorating Bonaparte’s Egyptian campaign. And of course, no visit to Paris could be complete without sitting at a terrace with a view of its most fun fountain, the Stravinsky Fountain, across from the Pompidou Center. But be careful: its whimsical, colorful pieces by Niki de Saint-Phalle spray water that could end up in your espresso!
