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."

  • It's crowded all day long. It's better to go there early in the morning but, since 9 o'clock is difficult to take a photo without many people around you 
  • Great fountain, but so much crowd here! Very clear water and amazing stuffs. In the summer could be very hot. But a gelato couldn't cool the heat. It melts within a minutes. Maybe you should try more than once. ;)
  • Can't say you have been to Rome without at least making a short stop here to admire this magnificent fountain. And I do mean a short stop as there's way too many people as the crowds here can be insane. It's a beautiful fountain though, and even in the Rome summer heat, a short pit stop here while enjoying a gelato is worth it and refreshing.
  • This is I believe the most beautiful monument in all of room. Nestled in a quiet corner it conjures up excitement from every entry point on first view. The monument is not only spectacular it is clean and sparking today as it was for the ancient. A first must see when visiting Rome Italy & remember to toss a coin to guarantee your retun. It worked for my wife but took until our 50th Wedding Anniversary to do it.
  • My favorite thing to see in Rome, and I've been twice now. The first time I went the Pantheon was my favorite, but the Trevi fountain was closed. The fountain is as if it were out of a postcard, or an Italian fairytale. So beautiful and it's incredible to think they carved it all by hand. And for those of us Lizzy McGuire movie fans, you HAVE to go and throw in a coin, just in case when you look up, a handsome Italian boy is looking at you. ;)
  • It is not as if the Trevi Fountain needs reviewing; it is one of the quintessential parts of Rome that you should never miss. Be prepared for crowds, however, and if you are willing to brave it early in the morning you might find a little more breathing room than usual; but the fountain truly looks it's best at both dawn and dusk. The lights cast deep shadows, giving the sculptures depth and life, and the water looks amazing. Lots of drinking fountains and "noses" around, but skip the nearby food vendors as they are very overpriced.
