Trevi Fountain, Rome

(4/5 based on 50,000+ reviews on the web)
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 is a great work, with extraordinary detail. Beautiful must see it day and night, when it is even more spectacular, if possible.

  • We made a visit early one morning: the fountain was deserted (apart from employees recovering parts). The fountain is splendid and unique in its kind.

  • Nice to walk and having seen, very busy around it. Like everything else in Rome: large, regalia and special.

  • I visited Rome in 2014, and Trevi Fountain was still undergoing renovations. So it's nice to finally see it restored during my 2016 trip. It's a very popular attraction, so it might be harder to see it up close. There was a very large crowd that filled the area even though it was 9pm at night. Still, I found Trevi Fountain to be beautiful and wondrous. If possible, visit early in the morning to avoid the crowds.
  • Continuously packed with tourists. Very little standing room. It's possible to get good pictures but you'll likely wait a while. Remember to throw a coin in with your RIGHT hand but over your LEFT shoulder. Also beware of the friendly men offering to take your picture for you. They'll quickly badger you for a picture from their Polaroid camera and ask for money. Otherwise this fountain is absolutely gorgeous.
  • Great fountain to check out. But it is always packed with tourists and people trying to sell you stuff. I personally think the fountain is prettier at night, plus the crowds are thinned out as well. If you are a night owl make a late night trip out here so you can sit and enjoy this awesome place when it is more laid back. But definitely worth the walk through in the day time.
  • This is one of the "must see" places in Rome, but in all honesty, it's not nearly as impressive as many of the other tourist attractions. Worth seeing for yourself if you haven't seen it before, but if I'm ever in Rome again, I likely won't go back here. I'd rather spend more time at all the other amazing places in Rome. It was very very crowded, which made it difficult to get good photos. They also say that this is one of the worst places in Rome for pick pocketing. Thankfully, we didn't have any first hand experience with this, but keep an eye out none-the-less.
  • 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 :)
