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

    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.

    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

    The was one of my favorite sites in Rome. Every city should have a fountain this magnificent. The statues are incredible and combined with the fountain it is literally magical to gaze upon. Its where the classic scene in La Dolce Vita with Anita Ekberg was filmed

    Standing 26 metres (85.3 feet) high and 20 metres (65.6 feet) wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. The Trevi Fountain was finished in 1762 by Giuseppe Pannini, who substituted the present allegories for planned sculptures of Agrippa and "Trivia", the Roman virgin. A traditional legend holds that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome. This was the theme of 1954's Three Coins in the Fountain and the Academy Award-winning song by that name which introduced the picture. An estimated 3,000 euros are thrown into the fountain each day. The money has been used to subsidize a supermarket for Rome's needy; however, there are regular attempts to steal coins from the fountain.

    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 :)

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

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

    Beautiful, impressive, romantic, fantastic... Trevi Fountain is really as amazing as all the reviews here state. This is the kind of place that you picture in your head but when you actually see it you are totally blown away. The details and the beauty of this 86ft (26.3m) high and 161ft (49m) wide fountain are amazing. You can stay hours here just admiring the sculptures and its details.

    The only downside of the fountain is that is always crowded. We tried twice, in the morning and at night, and in both of them the place was packed so we made our way to the fountain, threw our coin, took a picture and kept walking.

    An icon of Rome! It's as pretty as the pictures! Make sure you throw some money in the fountain because you'll be guaranteed to come back to Rome.

    Its a legend that when you throw a coin you will go back. Would you believe I had been back more than a dozen times and each visit I make it a point to see Trevi and throw a coin :)

    Preciosa, y aunque suene a tópico, es uno de los lugares más bonitos de la ciudad. La lástima es que suele estar muy lleno, siendo difícil hasta moverse. Debido a que está rodeada de edificios altos, hay que visitarla antes de que el sol empiece a caer por la tarde o la sombra dañará la fotografía perfecta.

    Likely the most famous architectural and sculptural Baroque masterpiece constructed in the 17th century in Rome. The Trevi Fountain features a statue of Neptune— god of the sea— riding a chariot pulled by an obedient and a restive sea horses, the ride setting symbolizes the fluctuating moods of the sea. The legend is that those who toss a coin over their shoulder into the fountain will return to Rome, thus I am remaining faithful since my last visit 10 years ago!

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 ... read more
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.
