Trevi

Trevi Fountain, Rome, Italy

No trip to Rome would be complete without a visit to the Trevi Fountain.

Trevi Fountain, Rome, Italy

Your stop will not take long unless the crowds are not cooperating and letting you get a picture. When I arrived it had just stopped raining so the crowds were not too bad.

An umbrella open at the fountain? Of course.

Water from the Tiber River has been flowing to this fountain since 19 BC making it the oldest  fountain in Rome. The fountain was recently refurbished (November 2015) with the addition of over 100 LED lights to improve night viewing.

Now if you are thirsty, there is a place where you can get a free drink of water. If you do not have a cup with you, no problem. Just put your hand over the bottom of the tap where the water is flowing out. There is a small hole about 3 inches up from the end, near the bend, where the water will start shooting out. Don’t stand too close.

Not the Trevi fountain but a good fountain to get a drink.

    I loved the Trevi fountain – was one of the highlights of my trip to Rome – nothing better than enjoying a gelato, throwing some change in and making a wish! Was a really fun experience 🙂
