Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi)

Piazza di Trevi, Rome, 00187

The basics

Situated at the end of the restored Aqua Virgo aqueduct, the Trevi Fountain is a popular spot for first-time and returning visitors alike. It's an essential stop on just about every guided tour of Rome, whether on foot or by bike, which also typically visit the Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona.

Although easy to squeeze into a busy day of sightseeing, you’ll still have to jockey for position close to the fountain in order to throw a coin over your left shoulder and (supposedly) guarantee a return to Rome.

When to get there

The Trevi is an outdoor public fountain, open year-round. Given its popularity, sometimes visitors have to wait their turn to admire it, get a good picture, or get close enough for a coin toss. Early morning and evening visits can be quieter and more atmospheric, especially during Rome's less touristed winter months. To avoid crowds and get stunning lighting for your photos, visit at sunrise.

Throwing coins is a charitable act

Coins thrown into the Trevi Fountain add up quickly, amounting to a few thousand euros/dollars per day. The coins are collected by the city each night, and the money is given to a local charity called Caritas, which helps Rome's neediest citizens.
