    Fontana Di Trevi

    by Cool-123 Updated Nov 16, 2002

    Favorite thing: It is said that the soldiers of Agrippa, looking for water in the via Collatina in the country, met a maiden who showed them the source of this pure water, which was hence called Virgin Water. The bas-relief on the right represents this even; that on the left shows Agrippa explaining to Augustus the plan to bring this water to Rome.

    The Trevi Fountain.

    The beautiful Trevi Fountain.

    Fondest memory: The Trevi Fountain had to be my most memorable sight in Rome. The beautiful water and the stunning sculpture behind it were unforgetable. Even the hordes of tourists gathered around it didn't bother me. Get an icecream from the nearby shop and enjoy it.

    Favorite thing: be in the crowd which is permanently on this narrow place. By day, By night. I always see a lot of people at the Trevi Fountain.

    Fondest memory: Put a coin of money in the Fountain and make a wish. You are in Rome : miracles can occure.

    TREVI FOUNTAIN IS VERY TOURISTY

    Fondest memory: The trevi fountain is quite a recent creation to Rome.It was completed in 1762 by Nicola Salvi.It is Romes largest and most famous fountain.It is a must see,but it will be very busy.Be sure to toss a coin over your shoulder to make sure u will return one day to Rome.You will see 100's of people doing this and it looks quite funny.The staues here are very beautiful and there has been so much work gone into this beautiful fountain.

    by cyrus_irani Written Aug 26, 2002

    Favorite thing: Visit the Trevi Fountain, then have your picture taken with your buddies, then get hit in the head by a coin. After you've been hit in the head with a coin, an old man will approach you and say that you are blessed, and absolutely without question claim you will return to the eternal city. Sweet.

    Fondest memory: My first morning walk to the Colosseum from my hostel on the via cavour.

    Favorite thing: There is nothing best in Rome than ,after a lot of rounds ,discover (specially by night) the magical Fontana di Trevi.
    When I think on Rome, that is the image that come to my mind, discover it is a real party to the senses.

    Favorite thing: Trevi Fountain Nicola Salvi designed this fountain in 1762. The central figures are Neptune flanked by two tritons. One struggles to master a very unruly 'seahorse'. The other leads a far more docile animal. These symbolize the two contrasting moods of the sea.

    Favorite thing: Be a shameless tourist and throw a coin into the Fontana di Trevi. I threw in 3...doesn't that mean I'll marry an Italian man?

    Fondest memory: The first night we were in Rome, we walked and walked until we came to the Pantheon. There were so many people strolling arm in arm, music was floating in the air, and we were eating gelati.

    Favorite thing: See the magnificent FONTANA DI TREVI, completed in 1762. To make certain that you return to Rome one day, stand with your back to the fountain and toss a coin over your shoulder and into the water!

    by arkadia Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: FONTANA DI TREVI

    This may not be the most beautiful fountain of Rome but for sure the most famous under the tourists.
    The design of the fountain is highly symbolic, with various intelectual connotations. A tall and sober Arch of Triumph (the Palace of Neptune) dominates the scene from on high, with a row of 4 Corinthian columns surmounted by an attic with statues and a balustrade.
    The central niche seems to show the commanding figure of Neptune, who with a firm hand guides a chariot drawn by two sea horses, known as the “spirited horse” and the “placid horse”.

    Favorite thing: And then there's the Trevi Fountain. A beautiful piece of work. One of us (who shall remain nameless) got addicted to the Lemon Gelati from the shop on the corner to the right as you face the fountain.

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Throw two coins to the Fontana di Trevi. The first will make you come back to the Fountain in the future (I'm still waiting for that to happen...), and with the second you can make a wish (my wish already took place so I have a record of 1 of 2 here). Remember that you have to throw the coin with your back facing the fountain over your shoulder.
    After that you can relax in one of the cafes near the fountain or with Gelati.

    by fotografik Updated Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Piazza Navona, Fontana Di Trevi, San Pietro, Colloseo, Forum, The Bone Church, i forget...if i remember i shall come back here and tell you...mi dispiace...

    Fondest memory: It has been awhile but living in Rome for 7 months is such unforgettable experience for me. My favourite spot is Piazza Navona eventhough it is a meatmarket. It's magical and it's full of spirit. I missed walking on those narrow streets of Rome..with cobble stones..missed the sound that those small cars and mopeds make. The Italians are wonderful, great sense of humour, sense of fashion, and most of all the food!
    I missed the art, the history, architecture, the old-fashioned streets, the culture, and most of all the idea of being there. It's amazing!!
