Prepare for disappointment. There is a need for renovation but at least the city of Rome could have put up a picture of the fountain in its glory days. We also went to Piazza Navona and the fountain wasn't even running. This was my 3rd trip to Rome, if you are going there for the first time google a picture... More

Unfortunately under repair or retoration. However, there is a temporary walkway around and over the fountain which brings you closer to the sculpture than before. Still well worth the visit.

Nice walk from side streets to the fountain but was way to crowded with people. You could not enjoy the fountain.

I have been to the Trevi fountain at least 70 times over the last 30 years, I travel to Rome for work at least 3 times a year. I ensure I go by the fountain and throw a coin in it, this way as the legend goes, it ensures u come back time and again. Over the years i have... More

Well what can you say other than that - there were heaps of people queueing up to file along the scaffolding boards to take pictures of a dry fountain. We found a bar and enjoyed a beer instead.

I was so looking forward to seeing the Trevi Fountain, but when we got there the water had been emptied and it was all under tarpaulin and scaffolding. There was a walkway set up to walk past it but very little could be seen. Very disappointed!

To my disappoint, I went to the Trevi Fountain in July and it was CLOSED for restoration! Imagine my sadness that I went to Rome and I didn't even get to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, sigh. Anyway, at the time there was a lot of restoration being done Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, the other rocket ship kind... More

I went there in June 2014. A beautiful place; nevertheless, it was in reform. It was a deception.But I could throw my coins and make my wishes. Very crowded, it was difficult to take a picture!

just got back from a 3 day break to rome, the trevi fountain was high on my list to see but on knowing that it was under construction i wasnt expecting a lot but on arriving there it was even more disappointing, the scaffolding & plastic sheeting cover the whole of the fountain, you really cant see anything at all,...
