Just when I thought the crowds were bad at the Pantheon, then comes Trevi Fountain. It was wall to wall people when we arrived and it’s a very small space. We had to squeeze our way down to get close to the fountain edge. When we got down there, it was difficult to get a photo of ourselves and the fountain background without getting someone else’s head or shoulder in the shot.
It really is something to see and nothing like the replica in Vegas. When you’re at this fountain, your supposed to take a coin and throw it into the water with your back facing the water. If the coin lands in the water then you’ll return to Rome in the future.
Our tour guide told us we were lucky to arrive when we did as the fountain had been closed for months for renovations. The renovations were actually paid for by the Fendi sisters, the famous Italian clothiers.
