A must visit on any trip to Rome. You can stand and admire the craftsmanship of the people who sculpted this fountain for a good while. Its not hard to see why its always busy around there.

Impressive sculputes

Rated:

A bit of a legend in the city that you should go to the fountain and throw a coin over the shoulder for luck, so we went ahead and followed it. The fountain itself seems always to have people surrounding it and its no surprise... it is a work of art.

Probably one of the most impressive fountains i've visited and also one of the most busiest with many lining its edges to throw a coin over their shoulder into the fountain for good luck.
