Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountain, Rome

Planning to visit the Trevi Fountain? Check out our information below!


The Trevi Fountain, right in the centre of Rome is perhaps the most famous fountain in the world and designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Giuseppe Pannini and several others. This Baroque fountain, located in Piazza di Trevi, is 26 metres high, 22 metres wide and was built in the 18th century. The fountain depicts Neptune (god of the sea) on his chariot towards the sea.

For the superstitious, there are two legends:

Legend 1: It is tradition to toss a coin into the water with your right hand over your left shoulder. This is supposed to bring good luck and ensure that one day you will return to Rome.
If you throw in two coins, you will return one day and find the love of your life in Rome.
If you throw in three coins, you will marry a Roman.

Legend 2: According to the second legend, a young girl had to tell the Romans the location of the fountain to save her virginity. Because of this legend, the Trevi Fountain is also known for the large number of marriage proposals made here!

Opening hours:
