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 :)Recommended for:

This place is worth at least two visits, one during the day to see the celeste bllue waters, and another at light to see it lit up. It is extremely crowded though, so it could be a great very early morning activity. Plenty of places right around there to grab delicious coffee too.

There are many tourists there, but it is worth! Don't waste your money throwing coins in the fountain, this is stupidity. :-) - prefer to buy a big Italian ice cream and stay there for some time, take a good look at the fountain sculpture details. You may spend hours doing this!

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.Recommended for:

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.

Very large, beautiful fountain, but you can't get any peace here! Sometimes there's a random seagull floating around in the water, so I wouldn't recommend touching it just in case. Definitely make it a stop, however quick, on your tour of Rome.
