Fountain Landmark
Throw a coin over your left shoulder into Trevi Fountain, the legend claims, and you are sure to eventually return to the city. Undoubtedly one of the most photographed sites in the city, the fountain was designed by architect Nicola Salvi and built in 1762. Standing at 26 m (86 ft) high and 49 m (161 ft) wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city. Fans of Italian cinema easily recognize this site, which has appeared in numerous notable films, including director Federico Fellini's famed "La Dolce Vita."

  • Beautiful Fountain located in a small alley of Rome. I was surprised by the cleanliness and beauty of the place. Of course, many tourists during the summer. The site is secured by many police officers. A must see in Rome.

  • The Trevi Fountain is huge and beautiful and terribly crowded. The crowds diminish the experience but everyone should visit anyway and throw a coin into the fountain to ensure a return trip to Rome.  more »

  • This spot is completely stunning. I was not expecting such enormity when I arrived. Equally as surprising though are the crowds. If visiting in summer, expect there to be a crowd all day and night. If wanting them to thin down for excellent photos, go between 4-8 am. There will still be a few people there, but not nearly as many. Don't forget to throw in a coin and the fountain vows to grant you a return visit!
  • Go here at night, it's much more magical. No matter when you go it will be busy. Be aware there are people offering to take your picture on a Polaroid camera. They first offer to take a picture for you. I didn't accept so I'm not sure there operation after that. Could be a nice keepsake if you're into that.
  • One of the most majestic and enchanting places on earth. You should go in the night to have a real romantic feeling. We went to Trevi around 3am the first time and we saw may be only 6-7 other people. Even pictures look better at night. Then you can wander around the streets and take the night bus home from Argentina Bus Stop. Do look for the signs which point you in correct directions, cause Google Maps tell you a very long and confusing way to it. Its only like 500meters from Argentina bus stop.
  • Well you have to see it if your in town because it's the Trevi Fountain. We arrived at about 2pm to find it packed three deep around the entire edge. With the guards blowing their whistles every five minutes to stop people putting their feet in. I'm sure it's better at other times. It is actually nice as a piece of sculpture and would be quite magical in the middle of the night if you had it to yourself. Couldn't help hearing Spike Milligan and Peter Sellers singing "Three goons in a fountain, which one will the fountain drown"
  • Definitely quite a tourist hot spot and for good reason. This fountain is stunning to see in person, especially now that it has been fully restored. If you are hoping to get close to the water be prepared to wait a bit, same goes for getting that perfect shot for your selfies. But other than the crowds this is a place definitely worth visiting.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
