Loved just sitting and having ice cream by the fountain. A beautiful place to eat, drink and relax - lots of tourists so do keep any eye on your belongings.

“Marcello come here”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Just throw a coin facing the other side and over your shoulder, and hope that you will come back. This tradition of throwing coins there is so famous as the fountain itself which was built almost three centuries ago. This is an incredibly beautiful masterpiece for any tourist to admire. Come here, preferably early or late at night, and look for the best angle to take a picture avoiding the crowds. And then try to get closer to the edge and look at the beautiful carved statues that make this a world-known piece of art. When I came here again in the afternoon of 4/29, a girl with a "Marcello come here" sign was melancholically looking for Marcello (Mastroianni), the actor of many Federico Fellini's movies. In the movie "La Dolce Vita", Marcello was looking for Anita Ekberg and he finds her inside this fountain playing with the water, and trying to seduce him. If you try to enter the fountain (or pick up coins from it) you will be stopped by the guards. Instead take another picture and enjoy being there. And maybe if you look better, you will imagine, like I did, Marcello wanting to kiss Anita while she looks gorgeous and unreachable.

Very beautiful fountain, especially at night. There's always a ton of people there taking pictures so if you want one right in front of it, you better be aggressive. Also be wary of those immigrants standing around shining those stupid green lasers. They might ruin your shot. Other then that, have fun and don't forget to make a wish.

“Trevi Fountain is so gorgeous, you will be in awe.”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

I have been to Vegas numerous times and have wondered why they 'over-do' on the size of everything. It's because the real thing, the Trevi Fountain, is absolutely HUGE. It's so amazing to think of how old all of these Roman attractions are, and how beautiful too. You gotta go to the Trevi Fountain while in Rome. We went in the day time and then again later at night. Both trips are worth the time.
