Fontana di TreviFree: All time

Probably the best known fountain of all the fountains in Rome, if not, in the world, Fontana di Trevi is a striking and grand fountain that takes up pretty much the entire Piazza di Trevi. The name Trevie is derived from “tre” and “vie”, literally translate to three and roads (The fountain is situated at the junction of three roads). The original fountain was built in 19 BC but in 1629, Pope Urban VIII found it insufficiently dramatic. However, it wasn’t until 1762, long after the Pope had passed away, that the Trevi Fountain was finally finished. The practice of throwing coins into the fountain has become popular among tourists to ensure your return to Rome. An estimated 3,000 Euros are thrown into the fountain each day! As you may have guessed, there are regular attempts to steal coins from the fountain 🙂
