This is the largest Baroque fountain in the city, one of the most famous fountains in the world and one of the most beautiful attractions in Rome, at least it should have been that. Unfortunately as of July 2014, the fountain is without water and scaffold covers it behind a Plexiglas fence. It is expected to stay like this until... More

The fountain looked like it could be impressive, however it was void of water and covered in scaffolding and construction workers. Photos show the effect it should give however we did not see it in its full glory. This could be such a wonderful attraction and I would recommend seeing it, however check before hand to see whether they are... More

Don't bother trying to see this one...scaffolding covers it now and its completely dry, but still draws a crowd which amazes me as you can't see it. People are still throwing their coins into a dry bucket!!

What Trevi Fountain?! It was surrounded with so much scaffolding you could hardly see the fountain. People had to walk through a series of platforms to get a closer look but we didn't bother. What for? What a waste of time to get there only to be very disappointed. They should let people know that there is massive restoration going... More

Get there if you go to rome. A beautiful work of roman art. Many dressed roman warriors trying to get a picture and tip, just ignore. Go there at night also when it is lit up.

Well, it's a fountain. It's impressive and there are some great coffee and ice cream stalls around. I suppose a must see if you are wanting wishes to be granted. I know my Auntie got engaged here. The pantheon nearby is also worth a visit. I always think how many people have seen places like the Trevi fountain and the... More

Went in August 2012 and it was partially covered in scaffolding. 2 years later, its fully covered in scaffolding. Taken 2 years to fully scaffold this iconic site that generates millions of tourists to visit. Now I understand why the Italian government went bankrupt. Not worth wasting your money, time and effort to see Rome. Restoration is happening on all... More
