Carolyn at Trevi fountain.jpg

The Trevi Fountain is usually a final stop for most tourists going to Rome, regardless of how many times one has been to Italy.
We are no different and always have to stop by on our last day in Rome. The fountain was popularized by the song "Three Coins in the Fountain" from the movie of that name.
One legend says that if you throw a coin in the fountain, you will return to Rome. Who can resist that ?
The fountain was designed by Nicolo Salvi in the 18th century. Each day several thousand Euros are thrown into the fountain and the money is used to provide for the needy.
