It should be a 3 really but the place is soo amazing! This area is just packed with things to do and see and the Fountain is always busy not just with tourists but locals too. There were coins in the Fountain and on our two visits they must be cleared out! I have forgotten the name of the posh... More

The stone work is amazing but currently under restoration. You currently have the oportunity to walk out to where you normally couldn't due to the water in the fountain. However restricted views

When I visited Trevi Fountains it was largely under wraps - some of it could be viewed via a platform - this was my second visit to it and would enjoy seeing it again when the "wrap" is off.

We enjoyed Trevi fountain! However it was much smaller than I anticipated and very crowded! I would suggest an early morning visit.

It's totally covered up with scaffolding right now. I know things are often being repaired in Rome, but this one is almost totally obstructed. Still worth swinging by, but pretty pointless to take pictures and its hard to get the real feel of the place.

Unfortunately, this had the water turned off when we visited so we were truly unhappy. You can still see the waterless attraction but water = fountain in my book. Maybe next time.

We were so disappointed because the fountain was under repair. We waited in a long line just to walk across a scaffold bridge set up. The guards there were rude and it was a real disappointment. It will be great when it is finished.

Well, my family will never let me live this down. After dragging them through the streets of Rome and getting lost several times in the process, we finally came upon the famous fountain only to find that it is under construction and no water to be seen! Ah, the joy of travel!

If you are taking a hop-on-hop-off bus, make sure to pick one that takes you here. We didn't check for this specifically and unfortunately the Trevi Fountain was not in its route so had to walk a looong distance to get to it. Fully worth the walk though! Even though it was very crowded, we still the fountain made us... More

My wife and I visited Italy in Spring of 1996 and were blown away by everything that we experienced from sites, sounds, tours, food, history, and just hanging at the cafes. We are going to make it back! I have pennies to throw over my back at the Trevi Fountain.
