Most Famous And Most Beautiful Fountain In ROME

>> Friday, May 15, 2009

The Trevi Fountain is one of the place that I visited when I went to Rome last 2007. A friend of mine who was with me asked me if I watched the movie MILAN before. Because this is one of the place that was been seen in that movie. It's the place wherein the main actor is looking for her girlfriend named Jennifer.

Trevi Fountain is the largest and most ambitious of the Baroque fountains of Rome. There are some people who consider this fountain as the most famous and arguably the most beautiful fountain in all of Rome. It stands 25.9 meters (85 feet) high and 19.8meters (65 feet) wide. It is located in the Trevi rione in Rome, Italy.

There is a traditional legend that if you will throw a coin into the water/fountain, you will return to Rome. *Before throwing the coin, you should toss it over your shoulder with your back to the fountain.*

According to Wiki, approximately 3,000 Euros are thrown into the fountain each day and are collected at night. The money has been used to subsidize a supermarket for Rome's needy.

Here are some sample photos that I took when I went there.










    Here is the complete appearance of the fountain.

Thank you for an interesting post and for sharing these superb photographs of the Trevi Fountain. Perhaps you may consider adding a review or images at the trivago travel community also?
