From Rome and Berlin to Peru and the Netherlands, comparethemarket.com has compiled a list1 of the top 10 most Instagrammed fountains, across the world.

According to the findings, the top 10 most Instagrammable fountains across the globe are as follows:

Jet d’Eau Geneva, Switzerland #jetdeau 145,647
Cascada del Parc de la Ciutadella Barcelona, Spain #parcdelaciutadella 109,382

All of the top 10 most Instagrammable fountains are in Europe, which is most likely because of the classic architecture.

Taking the top spot is the Trevi Fountain or ‘Fontana dei Trevi’ to Italians, located in the Quirinale district. The iconic fountain is a favourite spot for fashion shows and romantic wedding photoshoots. Considering this, it’s perhaps no surprise that #trevifountain has received almost 600,000 posts on Instagram.

Taking second place is Jet d’Eau in Geneva, one of the most famous landmarks of this city. With its unique structure which has helped gain its international prestige #jetdeau has almost 150,000 Instagram posts showcasing its beauty.

Coming in third is Cascada del Parc de la Ciutadella in Barcelona, Spain with over 100,000 posts. Designed by Josep Fontserè with help from Antoni Gaudi (who was student at the time). The stunning Cascada del Parc de la Ciutadella is registered as a Cultural Asset of Local Interest.

“When travelling to busy tourist spots such as fountains, if you’re carrying items like money, or an expensive camera, it’s important that you have the right level of travel insurance in place to suit your needs. Doing so can also help provide peace of mind should the worst happen such as falling victim to theft or losing your items.”
