My trip to Rome wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Fontana di Trevi
Actually couple of visit to the Fontanna di Trevi … From my personal experience I can say that all the roads lead to this stunning and humongous fountain. I was there several times during this little trip to Rome: very early at the morning, at the lunch time for the best ice-creams both Italian and Magnum, at the evening and at night.
Located in the Quirinale district of Rome, the Trevi Fountain is known as one of the most stunning fountains in the world – and I haven’t seen more beautiful one in the whole world (and I’ve been in many places so far). But there’s a lot more than just beauty behind this famous fountain!
The Trevi Fountain for sure stands out from the rest of stunning fountain in Rome. I think I will like Fendi fashion house even more than before. Why? They spent more than 2.2 million dollars to refurbish my favourite part of Rome. I’ve read also that the Trevi Fountain is one of the oldest water sources in Rome. The fountain dates back to ancient Roman times. It exist since the construction of the Aqua Virgo Aqueduct that provided water to the Roman baths and the fountains of central Rome. I’ve read that the Aqua Virgo, or Virgin Waters, is named in honor of a young Roman girl who led thirsty soldiers to the source of the spring to drink.
The fountain was built at the end point of the aqueduct, at the junction of three roads. These three streets (tre vie) give the Trevi Fountain its name, the Three Street Fountain.
I think that everyone knows that it is a must to through the coin into the wather. The legend holds that a coin thrown into the fountain will ensure a return to Rome. This tradition also dates back to the ancient Romans who often threw coins in water to make the gods of water favor their journey or help them get back home safely.
What many don’t know is that the coins are collected every night and given to an Italian charity called Caritas. Caritas, in turn, use the money for a supermarket program giving rechargeable cards to Rome’s needy to help them get groceries.
Tha last fact but not least – it’s a crime to steal the coins from the Trevi – so do not try it ;)
The girly dress I am wearing is from polish brand – Taranko. Even though it is 1,5 size too big (I need to fix it ;) I couldn’t imagine a trip to Rome without it ;) So pretty – in real life even more and girly was a perfect outfit in this stunning city.
Shoes are from Chloe – the most comfortable and pretty shoes I’ve ever bought for a trip.
