The Trevi Fountain is the largest Baroque fountain in the city of Rome and one of the most famous fountains in the world. The original fountain was built in 19BC as a way to offer fresh water to the city dwellers. It received a makeover in 1629 by Pope Urban VIII - many special design features are attributed to the famous artist Bernini.
A traditional legend holds that if you throw a coin into the fountain, you are ensured a return trip to Rome…I should know, it worked for me.
