Throw a coin over your left shoulder into Trevi Fountain, the legend claims, and you are sure to eventually return to the city.

Standing at 26 m (86 ft) high and 49 m (161 ft) wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city.

  • The Trevi fountain is a must! The can be seen at different levels, depending on your preparation and your background. Charming and romantic in the evening. Unfortunately in the summer always too crowded.

  • Symbol of Italy. It is worth visiting it both day and night. It helps to have that everything is quite handy in the heart of the wonderful Rome. It is imposing and enjoy it is much more that a photo.

  • Stunning fountain with its beauty as any one of Rome. Do rather about 9 o'clock the morning for photos and at least once at night to see it lit up.

  • One of the most beautiful fountains you can ever come across. It's such a beautiful landmark to visit and it's easy to walk to while you travel around the Rome by foot. Come and check it in day time and in the evening when light has gone down and the lights at fountain are switched on. You will be amazed by this place. It does get busy with people as it's one of the "must to see" places while visiting Rome so be ready to get into crowd. However, that will not spoil the beauty of this place. Make sure to take some great pictures with it as they will provide you with many beautiful memories.
  • In an August evening it was so crowded that a person could hardly move around the small square where the fountain is located. It is indeed a beautiful place and the fountain itself is stunning. It is one of Rome's great attractions and definitely worth going to see. Away from the high season it should be much more enjoyable to take it in. Rome is one of the world's great cities.
  • A beautiful old fountain situated only fifteen minutes away from the Colosseum. The classical structures have been well maintained and as a result the sculptures are a stunning displays of artistic skill. If visiting in the summer the piazza will be rammed full of people, especially during the day, so if you're not a fan of crowds it might be worth visiting in the evening or at night. Despite the crowds however, it is possible to get a nice picture if you're patient enough. Police regulate the area well and will blow whistles and shout at anyone who tries to go into or onto the fountain. For this reason there are very few street salesman in the piazza. Be warned there are con-men who hang around the attractions of Rome who will try to befriend you, offer you gifts and then will eventually ask for money. They will try to draw you in by befriending you and offering you a handshake. The best strategy is to just ignore them and they will quickly give up. If you engage they will keep trying to come back to continue the conversation. Despite this the fountain is well worth the visit and it won't cost you a penny.
  • In this place is very beautiful. I would say it's definitely worth a visit. We went quite late at night but there was still a lot of people and huge crowd taking photos at the fountain. Other sites such as the Roman Pantheon and the Spanish Steps are quite close as well. There are many shops around the fountain where you can grab food and buy souvenirs. Gelato is very delicious around the area. But apparently the prices are quite over-inflated. Make sure you remember to bring a coin to throw into the fountain. I would recommend visiting the fountain at night even though there are a lot of people because it lights up and looks quite beautiful.
  • With all that coin tossing, there is a lot of money that ends up in the fountain! Every night about 3,000 Euros are swept up from the bottom of the basin. That’s crazy right? If you are visiting this place make sure you are aware how you should throw your coins (Alas! I was not aware when I visited this place). The fountain is a true wonder - a jewel of water and stones. You can already hear its presence from the nearby streets. Indeed, as you get nearer the sound of its gushing waters grows constantly more intense, reaching a crescendo in the square, where you will find the most breathtaking sight. It was drizzling when we left for this place from the Colosseum and the more we were getting near the fountain, the rain was also getting heavier. It was until the moment you are right at the centre of the square and experience the symbolic representation of this great force of nature, a tumultuous spring that seems to flow out of the ground.
