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."

  • The first time we were in Rome in 2014 the Trevi Fountain was undergoing renovation and cleaning. Hence, no water, scaffolding and board walkways around it, along with tons of people around it...  more »
  • What a magnificent site! It is definitely tucked away from the street. While we were walking, I was unsure if we were going in the right direction until we rounded the corner and heard the water. We.....  more »

  • You will not find any other place in the world that celebrates the ever-mutating and incredible power of water like Rome. The Trevi Fountain is a fantastic work of art that is much more than a mere sculpture. This triumphant example of Baroque art with its soft, natural lines and fantasy creatures embodies movement as the soul of the world. The fountain is a true wonder, a jewel of water and stone that is nestled between the palaces of the historic centre of the city.
  • This is an impressive structure that appears to have been well maintained. The artwork, or sculptures, are classic. A wide-angle lens is recommended if you want to photograph the fountain because it is reasonably wide with limited room in front. Angled shots will be fine. Even in the relative calm of winter time (late January) this location was very busy with lots of tourists. It is a place of significant history though and still worth a look. There are some cafes and ice-creameries in the square, at the site.
  • Iconic fountain in Rome! It’s one of the lively place to hangout! Ideal time is to visit during sunset and you will find lots of tourists gathering there. Do not forget to throw a coin in the fountain over the shoulder to be sure to come back.
  • You simply cannot miss this majestic attraction. It's a must for anyone visiting Rome. Iconic and majestic. A postcard from any angle. Again do not leave Rome without visiting this beautiful fountain. I would recommend visiting at night for it's the best time to take beautiful pictures. Unfortunately be ready for the crowds. But it's also beautiful to watch during the day.
  • I wasn’t expecting too much...”it’s just a fountain”...so I was very pleasantly surprised by this stunning work of art in a humble little corner of Rome. Our apartment was less than 200m from the fountain so we visited/walked past many times and it is never not busy, even late at night. If you’re limiting your viewings then I strongly recommend at least two...one in the day and one after dark.
