Fontana di Trevi

This is the famous Trevi Fountain in Rome. One featured in many films among them La Dolce Vita starring Anita Ekberg. 3000 Euros of coins are chucked in to the fountain everyday and these are extracted every night and have helped pay for markets for the poor. Legend has it that if you throw in one coin with your right hand you will return to Rome, two coins, and you will marry, and three coins for marrying an italian! For those visiting, there is an amazing ice cream place a short walk from here called San NOT miss it!
