The Trevi Fountain is one of the largest fountains in the world.
The Trevi Fountain is one of the largest fountains in the world. It was originally a Roman aqueduct built by Marcus Agrippa in 19 BC. It was 21 kilometres long and provided water to thermal baths nearby. Unfortunately, the aqueduct was destroyed by the Barbarians in 537. During the Renaissance, the Pope ordered a restoration of it, including the addition of large fountains around it.
There is an old legend about throwing a coin into the Trevi Fountain. It states that if you throw a coin with your right hand over your left shoulder, you will return to Rome. This legend grew so much and was passed onto so many people that today, approximately 3,000 Euros are thrown in each day.
You really can't miss the fountain on your trip to Rome and if you're lucky, this magnificent fountain will grant your wish and bring you back to the Eternal City.
