The Trevi Fountain is a tourist hotspot in Rome. Definitely one to check off any sightseeing list. Just make sure you toss a coin in the fountain before you leave! Here's why, plus some other facts about this world-famous fountain.
The old tradition goes that tossing a coin over your shoulder into the fountain will ensure a safe return to Rome. Two coins will bring you love. And three... wedding bells!
The fountain is now swept every day, and on average €3000 is collected! The proceeds go to a Catholic charity called Caritas.
This is no myth. Not only is it thought of as bad luck, it's illegal! Don't risk the wrath of the gods, or the nearby security guards!
Built in ancient Rome, the fountain connected three paths of the Aqueduct carrying water around the city. This is how the fountain got its name: three streets - 'tre vie.'
The fountain is 85 feet tall and almost 65 feet wide! Massive amounts of water spill over the sides every day! Sensibly, the water is now recycled back into the fountain.
Of course you can visit this famous site at any time of the year, however, a warm summer evening is an ideal time. Note that the Fountain is currently undergoing restoration and is partly obscured by scaffolding. Be prepared to see it in its fully restored glory at the end of 2016.
There are a great many tours of Rome - walking and otherwise - which include the Trevi Fountain as part of their city-wide sojourn. It's well worth it to become more familiar with the city and its deep history.

This tour gives great background history to the Trevi Fountain and some overlooked history of Rome. Our guide Nick was amazing. He was knowledgeable on all things Rome and because our tour was smaller it was an intimate experience, like having a good friend show us around the Trevi Fountain. So much fun!!!
