Make a Wish at Trevi Fountain in Rome

Make a Wish at Trevi Fountain in Rome

Trevi Fountain usually is included in the private tours of Rome and Spanish Square because of its approximate to them. You probably feel familiar with Trevi Fountain even before you are actually here and see it with your own eyes, thanks to many movies that featured Trevi Fountain in, such as Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, Hollywood movies like 1953’s Roman Holiday and 1954’s Three Coins in the Fountain and many other movies.

Make a wish at Trevi Fountain

  • Theatrical effects

An aquatic marvel in a city filled with them, the fountain's unique drama is largely due to the site: its vast basin is squeezed into the tight meeting of three little streets (the "tre vie," which may give the fountain its name) with cascades emerging as if from the wall of Palazzo Poli.

  • Bigger than life

Being the largest Baroque fountain and probably the most famous fountain in the world, it is not surprising that Trevi Fountain has some traces of Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s touches, even though the original stretch of Bernini’s was never materialized. The statutes, Oceanus surrounded by Tritons and Sea Nymphs, are so much bigger than life that it can be really awe-inspiring.

  • Coin throwing

No fountain in the world can garner as much money as Trevi Fountain, 3000 Euros in a day ! And all of the money goes to charity. The right way to throw a coin is to toss a coin with your right hand over your left shoulder, with your back to the Fountain.  One coin means you'll return to Rome; two, you'll return and fall in love; three, you'll return, find love, and marry. So, throw a coin and make your wish come true.
