    I like this fountain. It looks a lot like a lot of other fountains, but somehow it's still remarkable.

    Toss a coin over tour shoulder into the fountain to ensure your return to Rome. Do it. You want to come back.

    One of the most famous of Rome's many beautiful fountains.

    Another of the popular "must do" checklist places in Rome. It is fun yet can be a bit challenging to locate on your own.

    The Trevi Fountain is also a place we found ourselves stumbling upon three times during our visit-- once because we trekked there, the other two times simply because it's so damn smack in the middle of the city. During the last of these incidents, at three in the morning, we witness a man propose to his girlfriend on one knee. Needless to say, we oohed and aww-ed, captured the whole thing on video, and sent it to them a few hours later. Make some memories here.

    The Trevi Fountain is currently undergoing restoration. The fountains are empty and blocked off. Not worth visiting at the moment, though surely beautiful when they're back on.

    This is the Trevi Fountain in Rome. Make sure you take some coins so you can throw them in to assure you return. Hint-don't sit under the lamp posts, the birds sit above you and may leave a deposit on your shoulder.

    It's extremely difficult to get close to Trevi Fountain because of all the people around, but if you are determined, you will do it. We took lots of pictures here.

    The Trevi is fed by the Aqua Vergine, which has been bringing water from the eighth mile of the via Collatina (to the east of Rome) since 19 BC. DON'T make like Anita Ekberg and climb in! ;-)

    so pretty! I honestly loved this spot so much, I went around 8 at night and it was very crowded! I would just love to see it at a less crowded time (if thats possible). Oh and there is an amazing gelato shop to the left of the fountain! nom nom nom

    This place is always packed! But for good reason. It's kind of one of those "must sees" when in Rome. If you go at sunset, it is absolutely stunning to see the shift between day and night. It's a whole other type of gorgeous in the evening.

    When you go make sure you know the traditions. First have 2 pennies to throw, and throw them backwards. The first is for your return to Rome and the second is for your wish :)

    It really surprised me how this is just around the corner, we were just walking along and it was all of the sudden there. It is usually a bit crowded though.

    The Trevi fountain is just magical. I visited about four times during my stay in Rome and even tossed a coin over my shoulder to bring me back to Rome again someday. The fountain marks the end of an aqueduct built over centuries and overseen by different popes. The main statue is of Ocean surrounded by several other Roman gods. The fountain is best seen at night although it gets a steady stream of visitors throughout the day.

    My first encounter was late at night while walking to a local club with my tour group. There was barely a soul around so we had the opportunity to take as many unencumbered photos as we pleased. The second trip during the day was hectic at best and I got a few photos in front of the fountain before retreating to the safety of the alley. The next time at night was still just as magical. Again, there was a crowd of people but it really depends on the time of day. Finally, I saw it a last time during the day. It's hard not to pass by and look at it. Be wary of your belongings since there are plenty of pickpockets in the crowds looking for an easy mark.

    The eternal city never stops to amaze me, it's wonderful how its atmosphere makes you feel reborn more than 2000 years ago.

    Throw a coin into Trevi fountain and you'll come back to Rome again!
    Tradition has it that you will return to Rome if you throw a coin into the fountain's water basin. You should throw it with your right hand over your left shoulder with your back to the fountain. You're not allowed to look behind you while you're throwing the coin but the fountain is so large it's basically impossible to miss.

    Absolutely stunning at night. Local frozen yogurt and desert shops make the Trevi an even sweeter after dinner spot. Super romantic too!

    Almost always filled with people but a visit to the Ancient city of Rome is not complete without stopping by this grand monument.

    How can you even write a review of something like this? It's one of the world's most beautiful public fountains in one of the greatest cities in the world! Go later at night when the crowds have thinned and sit and enjoy the people watching.

    Can be very crowded but a must-see, especially at night. Fellini knew what he was doing. Photographing it is tough, but you can play with the settings on an iPhone or Android to do it.

    This has got to be the most crowded place in Rome. You'll hardly be able to get a picture without anyone on it. It's specially beautiful at night and the bottom of the fountain is packed with coins from all over the world - throw yourself one and make your wish. The surroundings are full of little restaurants, shops and gelatto places.

    Beautiful. Check to see if there are any special events on at night. This fountain will take your breath away and is spectacular when lit up at night.

Description

Tradition has it that throwing a coin over your left shoulder into the fountain guarantees a swift return to the world's most beautiful city. Anita Ekberg's dip in it was immortalized in Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita, and Italian actor Toto even sold it to an American, passing himself off as its owner. Earlier Fontana di Trevi was the setting for the award-winning Three Coins in the Fountain motion picture, ensuring its popularity worldwide. Designed by Nicola Salvi for Pope Clemente XII, it was completed in the second half of the 18th Century. The statues in the center represent Neptune supported by Tritons on either side while rococo-style Poli Palace provides the perfect backdrop.
