The Trevi Fountain is, without a doubt, one of the most famous fountains in the world and is on nearly every guide's must-see list when in Rome. Although we dare to be different, the fountain is such a gem of Rome that we had to include it.
Located in front of a palace called the Palazzo Poli, this beautiful fountain draws tourists like mosquitoes to exposed skin, mostly because it is indicative of the Rome experience. With a statue of Neptune and his sea horses providing a centerpiece above the rocky upcroppings, the falling water, and the backdrop of the palace, it is a grand display on scale with our romantic visions of this great city.
For superstitious travelers, a coin flipped into the pool as you face away from it will ensure your return to Rome. Don't all roads lead here anyway?
Note:Located in the Trevi district of Rome on the Via delle Muratte.
