One of the must-sees on every visitor to Rome’s list is the Trevi Fountain. Tradition has it that you should visit just before you leave Rome and throw three coins over your shoulder into the water – one to marry a Roman, one to bring you back to Rome one day and one for charity.
The fountain is a beautiful baroque extravaganza which is set on the side of a building and takes up the whole of one side of the square. The reality of visiting it is somewhat less romantic than you might imagine as the crowds were ten deep when we visited.
I experimented with some video while we were there – sorry I haven’t yet found some suitably Italian music to drown the crowd noise – but I think you’ll get the picture.
