Surely it's disappointing to be in Rome and not able to see the famous Trevi fountain. Its covered in scaffolding. But there are elevated platforms for you to walk to see upclose the statues of the fountain. There is also a small pool with the photo of the trevi for you to toss your coins. Most of the attraction sites... More

We waled to the fountain, because we had heard so much about it. With it under renovation, the effect of it is lost. So, unless you know the restoration is completed, you can put this way down on your list of sites to see in Rome.

There is no point visiting the Fountain as it is covered in scaffolding from top to bottom. I couldn't understand why people where still queuing to walk over the water fountain when it had no water in it and you couldn't see any of it. Waste of time!

It is undergoing major renovation and there is virtually nothing to see apart from scaffolding. There isn't even any water in the fountain to throw a coin in!!

You will be truly disappointed if you visit The Trevi Fountain now while the present restoration works are ongoing. It is a scarring experience: I arrived expecting to be overwhelmed with beauty and delight. I quickly experienced an anticlimax of horrendous proportions; Sadly, I left feeling deflation and dejection; a hugely hideous memory. IT IS TRULY AWFUL. It looks like... More

The Trevi Fountain is under major cleansing works. Even with works being carried out, you can still view the magnificent structure thru the many scaffolds and plexiglass protecting the public from its work. A bridge like structure allows tourist to cross over it and many still throw coins into the now dry fountain. With the poor economy Italy is facing,... More

Unfortunately, the fountain was undergoing repairs and was covered with scaffold. Regardless, from what you could see, this fountain would be an impressive sight.

We were both looking forward to this but sadly when we visited the fountain was being repaired and lost its magic. Avoid our mistake and check before you visit.

It must be amazing when it's running but as of now is nothing but a huge construction zone. Check before you make the trip.

What do you expect? I've heard about the Trevi fountain ever since I was a kid (don't ask how many centuries ago that way) and finally go to Rome to see it. But alas, it was covered in scaffolding and just a little fake pool of water to toss your coins into. I understand that it will be much prettier... More
