About these ratings

A must-see on many travelers' itineraries, the Trevi Fountain is situated amongst a high concentration of hotels, shopping and nightlife. Finished in the mid-1700s, the Trevi is a powerful example of baroque design with a distinctly mythological character. The god of the sea, Neptune, emerges from the pool, flanked by his trusty Tritons.

According to Roman lore, throwing one, two or three coins into the Trevi, with your right hand over your left shoulder, ensures 1) you'll return to Rome, 2) you'll fall in love with an attractive Roman, and 3) you'll marry that same Roman.

This mythological sight is best viewed at night when lights illuminate the fountain. However, some TripAdvisor travelers lament the Trevi's "miscreant locals" and "uncountable hordes of tourists." Located in Corso and Spagna, you can find the Trevi Fountain off the Barberini and Spagna metro stops.
