Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi)

Piazza di Trevi, Rome , 00187

The Basics

Situated at the end of the restored Aqua Virgo aqueduct, the Trevi Fountain is a popular spot for first-time and returning visitors alike. It also features on just about every walking group or private guided tour of Rome, whether on foot or by bike, which typically also stop at the Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona.

Although easy to squeeze into a busy day of sightseeing, you’ll still have to jockey for position close to the fountain in order to throw a coin over your shoulder and (supposedly) guarantee a return to Rome though.

I loved how Greta brought history alive as we walked through the streets. For instance, the restaurant where we ate was built on the ruins of the theater. Food and drink made for an enjoyable time!

It is a beautiful walking tour for someone that has not been in Rome before so it would help to get familiar with the city must seen, not recommended if you know your way around

Rome: walking tour Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon
The tour was great. Very informative and our guide was extremely personable and made the overall experience wonderful. All the small bits of knowledge not only about the big monuments, but smaller points throughout the way, really made the city come to life, and are things you would never discover on your own. Absolutely worth the investment. You won’t regret it.

Best of Rome Walking Tour: Pantheon, Piazza Navona, and Trevi Fountain
My husband and I were lucky enough to visit Rome for the 2nd time and were looking up excursions since we’d already done most of the typical tourist destinations. This was the perfect option as we’d walked past many of these sites but didn’t know much about what we’d looked at. Vasco was an amazing tour guide and we learned so much! He is very passionate, knowledgeable and a great time to be around. If you enjoy history I would absolutely recommend this tour, we loved it!!

Trevi Fountain and Hidden Gems Walking Tour in Rome
Beautiful evening for me and the family. The tour was a really great way to see central Rome. Our guide Polly was funny and smart. Highly recommended.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The palace behind the fountain was redesigned to include majestic columns and statues befitting the fountain below.

  • Wear comfortable shoes to walk through central Rome's cobbled streets.

  • Distracted tourists make easy targets for pickpockets, so keep your valuables close.

  • The Trevi Fountain was the central monument in the movie Three Coins in the Fountain and played a memorable role in Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita.

  • Throwing a coin over your shoulder into the fountain supposedly ensures you'll return to Rome some day.

How to Get There

The Trevi Fountain dominates the Piazza di Trevi in the historic center of Rome, not far from the Quirinal Palace. It's easiest to get there on foot or by bike, given the narrow streets surrounding the fountain. On the Metro, take line A to the Barberini stop.

When to Get There

The Trevi is an outdoor public fountain and is open year-round. Given its popularity, sometimes visitors have to wait their turn to admire the fountain, get a good picture, or get close enough for a coin toss. Early morning and evening visits can be quieter and more atmospheric, especially during Rome's less touristed winter months. To avoid crowds and get stunning lighting for your photos, visit at sunrise.

Throwing Coins Is a Charitable Act

Coins thrown into the Trevi Fountain add up quickly, amounting to roughly $3,600 (€3,000) per day. City officials gather the coins each night, and the money is given to a local charity called Caritas, which helps Rome's neediest citizens.
