Trevi Fountain

This magnificent late Baroque majestic fountain was built between 1732 and 1762 and designed by Nicoli Salvi. The name Trevi comes from the Latin word trivium which means three streets because of the three ancient roads leading to the square. The fountain’s water is supplied by the Acqua Vergine, one of the most important Roman aqueducts. Every day over 3,000 Euros is thrown into the fountain by the tourist. The legend says if you flip a coin with your right hand over your left shoulder into the fountain, you will return to Rome. On the other hand, if you throw two coins, you can have a wish, if you toss three coins, you can look forward to your wedding in this beautiful city. The Catholic charity Caritas receives the money after it has been cleaned and sorted out from the fountain. Today it is one of the most visited Roman monuments, which can be also admired in many classic films among others the Roman Holiday and La dolce vita.
