Fontana di Trevi (Trevi Fountain)

Piazza di Trevi, 00187 Roma

This impressive, extravagant Baroque monument dominates the small Trevi square located in the Quirinale district and was immortalised in the movie La Dolce Vita with the legendary Anita Ekberg. The masterpiece, built by Niccola Salvi and Bernini. was finished in 1762. The central figure of the fountain is Neptune - God of the sea. He is riding a chariot in the shape of a shell, pulled by two sea horses. Each sea horse is guided by a Triton. One of the horses is calm and obedient, the other one restive. They symbolize the fluctuating moods of the sea.

Fontana di di Trevi is a real baroque masterpiece which has no parallel in the world. Only upleasant is that the fountain is permamently surrounded by crowds of tourist and vendors (emigrants from Bangladesh or India) aggressively pushing you to buy roses . If you want to enjoy this beutiful place in peace then you have to go there in January when is there less tourists. In other months is necessary to go there very early in the morning if you want to avoid noisy crowds.
