Fontana di Trevi by night

Only a few towns in the world have such a big number of beautiful fountains like Rome. Trevi Fountain is one of them – the largest baroque fountain in Italy and also considered by many people as one of the most beautiful in the world.

With a long history (in ancient Rome it served as the terminal point of the aqueduct Aqua Virgo), Trevi Fountain is a great attraction for tourists who visit Rome.

The fountain is located close to Column of Marcus Aurelius.

A tourist activity is to throw a coin (or more) into the fountain. It’s estimated an average of 3000 Euros thrown there everyday (all funds are collected and donated to some charity organizations). The legend said if you throw a coin you ensure your visit back to Rome.

Below is a video which describe better Trevi Fountain and its history:
