The iconic Trevi fountain popularized by the film Roman Holiday is the largest of all baroque fountains in Rome. Rumor has it that before its potrayal on Roman Holiday, it was relatively insignificant on the tourist circuit – but one would never guess that based on the throngs you find here even during the off season.

After having initially visited the fountain during the day, had to stop by again during night just to take this photograph.

    gorgeous capture of the famous fontana :) it must have been very quiet when you took this shot as it’s usually bursting with people

  • thanks Francesca. actually it was not quiet at all – this was right around the dinner hour when people were strolling the streets before or after dinner. I had to wait a long time to get a shot where there was no one in the frame :)

    Congratulations on your top 10 win, this is so fabulous.. I have so many good memories of Roma, and this place.. It looks great now that they finished all the cleaning. Last time I was in Rome it was still in progress.
