"Toss a coin & you're promised a return to Rome" Trevi Fountain Tip by Gypsystravels
Trevi Fountain, Rome: 39 reviews and 34 photos
Favorite thing: Who doesn't recognize the most famous and spectacular of all the Roman Fountains???
Immortalized through paintings, engravings, photographs and films (like two of my favorite, 'La Dolce Vita' and 'Three Coins in a Fountain'), it is one of the most beautiful fountains here in Rome.
Fondest memory: The fountain was built by Nicola Salvi for Pope Clemente II on a wall of the Palazzo Poli and was completed in 1762. Tradition says that if you throw a coin into the fountain over your left shoulder you will return to Rome again soon.
