Trevi Fountain is a fountain in the Trevi district in Rome. Standing 26.3 metres high and 49.15 metres. It is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. The fountain has appeared in several notable films, including Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita. The Trevi Fountain was built in 1762 by Giuseppe Pannini. The famous fountain is an ideal play of water and rocks. The fountain dates back to ancient Roman times, since the construction of the Aqua Virgo Aqueduct in 19 B.C. that provided water to the Roman baths and the fountains of central Rome. The fountain was built at the end point of the aqueduct․ When the fountain is open roughly €3,000 is thrown into it every day as people follow the tradition of throwing coins over their shoulders. The legend holds that a coin thrown into the fountain will ensure a return to Rome and It’s a crime to steal the coins from the Trevi.

    The reputation is not wrong. This is a piece of wonder to gaze upon. The white glistening marble looks wonderful from any angle. the water is also very clear. It draws crowds through out the whole day. It's a bit sad that it's surrounded by buildings and cobble stone streets so close to it. this is well worth your time to go and see. Take you time there too and look at the horse and all that's around it

    Beautiful and spectacular fountain. Coin tossing is the famous thing in this place.  " Three Coins in the Trevi Fountain". It claims that you throw three coins into the fountain. The first coin guarantees your return to Rome, the second will ensure a new romance, and the third will ensure marriage. Rome collects the coins from the Trevi Fountain and use it for the poor

    In reality a very beautiful fountain, however the place was swarming with toursits, I went in the month of May and we had to push our way through to reach it. Just for this I have given it a 3 star. There are many such beautiful public fountain in Rome. I would suggest to stroll near Trevi in the wee hours of the day, you could get a much better photo than I have managed to click n would be much calmer but be aware of your belongings & surroundings , there are many hawkers & Rome has a notorious reputation for being the hub of pickpockets.

    The first time I went in July of 2014, it was covered in scaffolding which was a huge disappointment, but it was still beautiful. However, when I went in May 2018 with three of my friends it was cleaned up and the water was turned on. It was one of the most gorgeous landmarks I have ever seen. You must push your way to the front for better pictures, tossing a coin in the water, and to truly enjoy the fountain in all of its glory.

    This fountain has been adorned with a magnificent statue of the Ancient Roman sea God Neptune riding the seas on his chariot being pulled by hippocampi. Carved in white, the statue is absolutely gorgeous and regal. The water is extremely clear too. The locals here believe that if you throw coins over your shoulder into the fountain your wishes might come true. Different number of coins for different wishes. Overall the place is totally worth visiting if you happen to drop by into Rome

    Stunning place to visit and everyone thinks so too! Filled to the hilt with people taking selfies and tossing a coin into the clear blue water. It's worth pushing through to stand at the edge. Better still, visit early and you won't have to struggle to get through. We stayed close by and found that before 9 the square was more manageable.

    It's a beautiful place to visit. You have to throw a coin in the fountain for tradition 6. The only problem is that there were about 10 billion people there when I was there. I'm very romantic. Not easy to get a good picture either. But it's definitely a great place to visit.

    This place is so beautiful. I'm glad we went at night and saw it lit up. I believe it was even prettier that way. Definitely worth a visit. Oh yeah, don't forget to throw a coin in! Turn your back to the fountain. Take the coin in your right hand and throw it over your left shoulder. You're coming back!

    Absolutely stunning fountain. Definitely visit here when in Rome. It's a great place to chill out and watch what's happening in the square. It does get extremely packed so you will have to try and fight your way to front or go early in the morning or later at night to see it with the lights on. My first visit I didn't even get a chance to toss my coin in.

    Stunning and worth fighting the crowds to see. The Trevi fountain is a masterful work of art and wonderfully maintained. It glistens in the sunlight and you could find a thousand different details on each carved figure or surface. At night, the dramatic lighting makes the statues seem to come alive as the light, color, and shadows dance. The fountain is surrounded by shops and street peddlers, and the atmosphere is always lively. Grab a gelato nearby and take some pics. Don’t forget to throw a coin in the fountain to ensure your return to Rome!

    So crowded but a really cool place and a must visit when in Rome. Selfie Stick is needed for some cool picture of your back facing the Fountain. Bring some coins!

    Get to the front and hold your spot. Toss a coin into the fountain to ensure your future return to Rome. Plus, all money in the fountain goes to aid the homeless.

    Beautiful, but very crowded. Beware that if you sit on the edge of the fountain to take a picture, you might get wet.
