We followed the map, fought the crowds and found the fountain. It was covered in scaffolding but there was a walkway installed so we could get closer but the police made sure you didn't stop. The next time we go to Rome we're going to make sure the fountain is up!

Unfortunately the fountain was undergoing maintenance when we visited, so we didn't see the fountain working or in all it's glory. I would suggest visiting early or later on in the day as the area around the fountain gets extremely busy almost claustrophobic. Not as spectacular as other sights in Rome but worth a visit

I am sure the Trevi Fountain is worth a visit. Unfortunately at the moment there is major restoration work going on. I was a little disappointed not to be able to throw a coin in the fountain but no doubt the restoration will be worth returning to Rome for.

due to the fact that it was under restoration, and will be for the net year or so, so if you intend to visit, be aware. You can still throw your money into a little pool of water and make a wish!

One of the most beautiful things I have seen : we came upon the Trevi Fountain by accident ,having had lunch we were making our way back to our hotel and walking down a small street . Suddenly the street opened into a square and there , in front of us , was probably the most famous fountain in the... More

I am sure that this sight is absolutely amazing, however it is in full restoration mode at present, so be warned, if it is one of the main things you wish to see in Rome, do your research and ensure it is completed for your visit.

This attraction is a must see! Its very crowded during the day but when I went back past it at night time, there were hardly any people there. The biggest bonus of going at night is that there are none of those guys that ask €10 for a crappy Polaroid picture. Despite that, just go and check it out &... More

I wanted to go there with my lovelong time ago because this one was one on my bucket list. Just sip an espresso and eat ice-cream and just watch the crowd around you. Fantastic energetic feeling. Of course it was under construction...this is my luck! But apart from this I loved it all way long. And thankfully have to come... More

Very disappointed at the maintenance works going on here, which meant there was no water in the fountain. We took the "boardwalk" but it was totally uninspiring.
