The water spilled by the fountain daily is 80.000 cubic feet.
History of Trevi Fountain
Trevi Fountain was designed by Nicola Salvi an Italian architect and finished by Pietro Bracci. Being one of the oldest water sources in Rome, the magnificent fountain dates back to Roman times. The fountain was constructed to signal the last destination of the Aqua Virgo, the tunnel that supplied water to Roman Bathrooms. It was constructed where three roads ended giving it the name Trevi meaning three streets. The fountain gets water from the Aqua Virgo aqueduct which, according to legend was discovered by a young virgin girl. She, in turn, showed it to thirsty Roman soldiers.
Statues in the Trevi Fountain
In the middle of the fountain stands the statue of Oceanus, the Greek sea god under a triumphal arch. In the middle are two seahorses pulling his chariot with one wild and one docile to represent the different sea moods. The horses are led by 2 Tritons, with the older holding a twisted shell announcing they are passing. On the side are the statues of Abundance and Salubrity. The statute of the virgin girl is on the right side of the fountain.
Beauty of the fountain
There’s a row of seats constructed in front of the fountain like you would find in a theater. Surrounding the statues, there are natural outlines that blend with the man-made marble features to produce a breathtaking sight. The beauty of the fountain is seen in the water and stones. The soothing sounds of the gushing water are audible from the streets nearby and they climax when you get to the fountain.
Legend of throwing coins in the fountain
You are supposed to throw a coin in the fountain with your right hand over your left shoulder and with your back to the fountain though it’s so big you can’t miss it.
Legend has it that if you throw a coin in the fountain, you will visit Rome again. If you throw two, you will find love and if you throw three, your love will marry you.
There are approximately 3000 Euros are thrown into the fountain daily. They are then collected and given to a charity organization named Caritas in Italy.
To the right of the steps, there is a tiny fountain meant for newlyweds. From it, they drink water from a glass and then break it such that nobody else drinks from it symbolizing fidelity.

Raju's 9 days trip to RomeTrip was very well planned & executed by the Responsible person Mr. Shashank, all went well as planned except 1 day driver missed the appointment & not turned up, but the contact person immediately took action & asked us to take another Taxi without waiting for the pre booked Taxi. Response of the team was good . Just few recommendations even though it is not agency mistake or might be we asked for them to booked for us so it happened that is for the Local transportation & unlimited trip passes ask travelers to buy from hotel or dly. the Passes at the hotel as collection of these passes is a little hectic job as you can collect your passes only at pre defined places if booked online. For that you have to have a Taxi to go which is is additional 15-20Euro Expense. Once again Thanks for a memorable trip.

Ajithbl's 9 days trip to RomeWith regards to experience in vatican,i felt they could have booked a vendor who is more flexible for the guided tour as this vendor "Overrome" was not willing to respond soon to mails and also not willing to refund my money for the tour..I accept its my mistake of being late there by few minutes,but wheni checked there ,every vendor was willing to refund the money barring 8 euros..But this vendor was too stubborn...This was one bitter experience where i felt they were harsh to customers..Also "pickmytrails" werent even concerned about what i was doing next ..I expected them to show some bit of concern,but they werent bothered and not intrested to know what i had been going through..I expected "overome" vendor to refund atleast a bit of money back to my account (even though im not expecting to refund the full amount) as i had to spend some on another vendor close to 100 euros all over again..
