Trevi Fountain - Rome
Towering approximately 85 feet tall and 65 feet wide, the Trevi Fountain is by far Rome’s most beautiful and majestic fountain. This breathtaking work of art was designed by the Italian architect Nicola Salvi in 1732 and completed thirty years later in 1762.
Legend has it that if you toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain, you’re assured to return to the city of Rome. And daily, thousands of euros are tossed - to the tune of over €3000 per day! The money is collected at night by city workmen and later donated to Claritas, a Catholic charity.
In addition to Instagram worthy selfies, the Trevi Fountain makes a great destination for touring central Rome. From here you’re not far from Piazza di Spagna, the Spanish Stairs, Sergio Di Cori leather glove shop, and Bottega Trevi - a very tasty little spot for a bite to eat and a glass of wine.
