Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi)
Tradition has it that throwing a coin over your left shoulder into the fountain guarantees a swift return to the world's most beautiful city. Anita Ekberg's dip in it was immortalized in Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita. Earlier Fontana di Trevi was the setting for the award-winning Three Coins in the Fountain motion picture, ensuring its popularity worldwide. Designed by Nicola Salvi for Pope Clemente XII, it was completed in the second half of the 18th Century. The statues in the center represent Neptune supported by Tritons on either side, while rococo-style Poli Palace provides the perfect backdrop.
We go to the Trevi Fountain every night when we are in Rome to people watch and enjoy a glass of vino. You must go there at least once in your life. It took 30 years to complete. It's magnifient. Mary from MN

So romantic and the ambience is so enchanting that I re-visited it every time I got a chance to see Rome. I 'm fascinated that everytime I threw a coin in the fountain, I always get to come back and visit Rome.Lo and behold I've visited Rome several times in my 7th contract as a seafarer.I might skiipped seeing Rome in a couple of years but things just happened and I'm back in Rome again. No wonder I keep saying Arrivaderci, Rome.La cita bella!!!
The Trevi fountain was enormous when I was Eight, the coin I tossed into it was fun and a wish of a child is a magical moment. At the age of Eighteen I returned to find that the wish of a young women is to have a Romantic future, and to find a prince that would steal my heart. Once again, I returned at thirty eight, without my prince, although "the view was spectacular" and my "heart" will always remain in Rome!
The Trevi fountain is one of the most beautiful places in Rome and anyone who goes to Rome should not miss it. It was amazing to see the size of the fountain in comparizon to its surroundings. I would recommend you also visit it at night time because it is amazing. We found a great lunch spot in the neighborhood, delicious and reasonable prices and full of locals(so you know it is good) it is called IL Faro.
Trevi Fountain is an extraordinary mixture of power and beauty. Graceful mythological statues sit astride waters rushing over rugged stonework. Trevi is brilliant in the sunshine and elegantly illuminated at night. As we sat in awe of the fountain itself, we also enjoyed watching the international crowd. The only downside? Zero cafes and cappucinos! What a shame!
I have visited Rome three times and from the very first trip, it has secured a place in my heart.
My first visit in 1976 was filled with deja vu from the moment I stepped of the plane. Ever since, I have felt a strong connection to Rome and surrounding areas, a connection that has culminated in the desire to have a second home in either Rome or Tuscany and it's something my husband and I hope to do in the near future.
Yes, I have tossed coins into Trevi and the desire is not only to return to such a fabulous city, but one day be able to say it is also my second home.
