There are not many other fountains in the world as lavishly decorated and sculptured as the Trevi fountain.
Constructed in 1762 by Nicola Salvi, the fountain pays tribute to the Roman God Oceanus who can be seen riding his chariot pulled by Tritons and taming several Hippocamps.
The detail of the sculptures is simply wonderful and the whole facade and fountain are a true work of art.
It has become a tradition to throw coins into the water over your shoulder for good luck although trying to do so next to hundreds of other tourists might prove difficult! Located in close proximity to the Pantheon and Quirinale palace, this fountain should not be passed up on when walking through the streets of Rome.
