Trevi Fountain, (Fontana di Trevi, in Italian), is one of the iconic places of the Rome, and also Italy.The fountain, standing 85 feet (25.9 meters) high and 65 feet (19.8 meters) wide, is one of the most famous fountains in the world.Its legend and stunningly artistic look keep attracting people from all over the world and is one of the most popular tourist destinations of the Rome and Italy.

According to the legend, Roman soldiers while returning from a war couldn’t find water and a beautiful girl, standing at where the pool now is, told them to dig where she stands at to find the water.They did so and found the water source beneath where the pool is located recently.If paid attention at the reliefs on the wall, it could be seen that there is this beautiful girl and that the soldiers are digging at where she stands, telling about this legend.

The fountain, which was restored in 1998, and the square where the fountain is at is a popular tourist destination.If you visit this place, don’t forget to eat some ice-cream somewhere at this square.There are places where you could shop around and buy some souvenirs.Visiting the fountain in day time and at night are two different phenomenons really, so, try both, I would say…
