The Trevi Fountain in Rome, Italy, is one of the most popular places in the city and a real tourist attraction. This is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. I snapped this photo of a young mother with her son on a day early in November.
As legend has it, visitors who throw a coin into the fountain are ensured a return to Rome. This was the topic of the movie Three Coins in the Fountain and the 1954 Academy Award-winning song by that name that was introduced in the film.
This isn't the only fountain with a coin tossing legend in the city of Rome, Italy. The 2010 movie When In Rome starring Kristen Bell was an adorable romantic comedy with a spin on this legend that was quite entertaining.
So when in Rome, throw a coin into Trevi Fountain and you'll be guaranteed a return trip to this amazing city, just don't take any coins out of the fountain or it could spell trouble.
Admission fees to theme parks and local tourist attractions can really add up and max out your vacation budget, but you can save up to 55% on theme parks with Go City Cards. I've used these for several vacations and saved hundreds of dollars. Just one of my many best travel deals tips you'll find on this website. ~Marianne Schwab
Book Your Trip
Booking travel online should be quick and easy…not to mention affordable and that's why I like Expedia. Did you know that you can save up to $525 when you book your flight and hotel together at Expedia.com? For the best deals, book 60 days or more before you travel because usually the further out you plan, the better the package rate. ~Marianne Schwab
