The Trevi Fountain is grand, opulent, and beautiful. As awesome as it is to see the fountain during the daytime, it's almost magical when you see the Trevi Fountain lit up at night. Beware of pickpockets though. There are many tourists and it's a prime spot to have your money taken.Recommended for:

One of the most fascinating and visited sightsee in Rome is the Fontana di Trevi where the iconic scene of Fellini's Dolce Vita made it an eternal aspiration. a thousand photographs won't be enough...We visited it at night where all the lights made it even more dramatic. I would suggest sunset as best time. Beware of payable cameramen, unless you need someone to take your photo...Recommended for:

The most beautiful fountain in the world follows the theatrical fashion of 18th century Italian architects. It is a collection of Mediterranean symbols: water gushing from all sides represents purity; the statues represent abundance and virginity; the setting celebrates the sea and its God Neptune, dominating the scene from a chariot carried by horses, driven in turn by Tritons.

While it's nearly always busy here, it's fun to visit and do the coin toss, which legend says will bring you back to Rome if tossed over your shoulder. Each time I leave Rome, I want to go back again - and so far the coin seems to be working. :) Visit in the early morning for less crowds.

It's an amazing sight to see. Beautiful and charming. It's fun to throw the coin and hope that you'll be back! It's quite crowded with tourists but worth the hustle and bustle.Recommended for:

This is a must visit site because you need to throw in a penny to ensure your return visit to Rome. The down side is it is usually very crowded and hard to get near the water. One late evening, however, we saw the Trevi Fountain with hardly anyone there.Recommended for:

Beautiful iconic fountain. It's at a main location where you will see all of the people! You have to make sure you take time to make a wish in the fountain! Stand with your back to the fountain, and toss a coin over your shoulder into the water!!! My group got lots of nice photos from this location. There were times at night where the lights were on and there weren't as many people visiting as there was in the morning. I would recommend seeing it both day and night time. It's actually quite romantic when it's not as busy.

Trevi Fountain or Fontana di Trevi in Italian is the biggest Baroque fountain in Rome. It's believe that if who want to come here again, have to throw a coin into the water. So there are many coins in fountain everyday. The fountain is very beautiful both day and night.

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 filmedRecommended for:

Work on the celebrated rococo fountain was first begun in 1732 by Nicola Salvi (who beat off competition to be awarded the commission by Pope Clement XII) and was completed by Giuseppe Pannini in 1762.
The monument, whose water is supplied by one of the oldest Roman aqueducts, the “Acqua Virgine”, has been sculptured against the backdrop of Palazzo Poli and depicts Triton taming Oceanus’ shell-shaped chariot drawn by sea horses.
Before moving off, do not forget to throw a coin in the fountain. Custom has it that travellers doing this will one day return to the eternal city. Those seeking a little romance, perhaps even an Italian love, should then toss a second, third coin to make sure wedding bells will soon be chiming.
Not forgetting of course that the fountain provided the splendid setting for the best-known scene from director Federico Fellini’s classic film “La Dolce Vita”: a provocative Anita Ekberg swathed in a long black evening dress calls out for Marcello Mastroianni, “Marcello, Come Here!” as she glides through the fountain’s sparkling waters.

One of the most popular fountains in Rome. the Trevi Fountain was designed by Nicola Salvi in 1732. Tradition has it that a coin thrown into the water guarantees a visitor's return to Rome. The central figures are Neptune and two Tritons. One struggles to master an unruly sea-horse and the other a more docile animal. These symbolize the two contrasting moods of the sea.

Simply stunning and magnificient. According to tradition, tourists should throw a coin in the fountain (without looking at it) if they want to come back to Rome. During the night it's less crowded and probably even more beautiful.
