At the moment the fountain is covered with scaffolding and has no water running, which was pretty disappointing. Though there is still a small section to throw a coin into. However, if you can use your imagination it would be spectacular when fully functional.

After a long walk from Barberini Metro stop, we were disappointed to find that the marvelous Trevi Fountain was covered in scaffolding as an extensive restoration is being undertaken. There is a gangway over the dry fountain and you are allowed to walk across by are not allowed to stop so take a quick picture, toss a coin and make... More

It seems a bit unfair to review this fountain in its current state. It is completely covered in scaffolding at the moment and it will be for some time. I knew about the scaffolding in advance but went along for a peek anyway. the water is completely shut off, but dont worry if you had your heart set on throwing... More

The place for all the lovers in Rome. Hidden in the narrow streets, when you turn on the site, you can only admire all these great sculptures in this fountain. Personally I prefer it during the late hours of the night. It is almost with no people and it is beautiful! You should visit it when in Rome and of... More

Disappointed to find this ancient treasure was being restored. It doesn't have the same atmosphere whilst it is being restored, but I guess it is much needed. One positive though, scaffolding has been erected which means you can get closer than usual.

We were in Rome during the first week of September 2014, and Trevi Fountain was "under construction". They have drained the water so that they can renovate this masterpiece. What you will see is a dried up fountain surrounded by scaffolding. You can "walk through" to get close to the fountain itself via metal walkway, but you cannot "stop" or... More

The Trevi Fountain is under re-refurbishment so the whole site is pretty ugly and disappointing. But hopefully when I return the next time it would be fabulous.

We were in Rome this past week and the Trevi fountain was under construction! So disappointed, but we were still able to toss coins in the makeshift fountain, so hopefully that means we will be back for a second trip to Rome when Trevi Fountain is fully open and restored.

The Trevi-fountain is a really nice piece of art. I've seen it already a couple of times. During my last trip to Rome (September 2014), I wanted to visit it again. Though it is completely in a scaffolding because of renovations. So you should come back later on. It looks like they only started a few months ago. So I... More
