Fountains
Galore

Across
the streets of Rome, you will discover some of the most stunning sculptures across
the globe. Nowhere in Rome is more synonymous with astonishing sculptures than
its majestic fountains. The aquatic displays became a centerpiece of the city throughout
the Renaissance and they enthrall the minds of locals and travelers today.

Trevi
Fountain is the largest and one of the most celebrated fountains in the city.
Symbolic for the aqueducts that once supplied ancient Rome with water, the
fountain is now a place to marvel at displays of impeccable craftsmanship. When
you visit Trevi Fountain, toss in a coin or two for good luck!
