Useful tips for visiting the attraction
- Choose the ideal time: being one of the most famous attractions in the city, it is also one of the most crowded. To be able to observe it carefully and without too many people around, choose a suitable time, such as early in the morning or the time for lunch or dinner.
- Beware of scams and pickpockets: don't be fooled by street vendors (often abusive) who sell souvenirs and various items. Also pay attention to your personal items, backpack, purse or wallet: protect them from pickpockets, a plague that the city of Rome is still living with.
- Behave with civility: obviously it is not allowed to bathe in the fountain or even immerse parts of the body, even if the heat will seem suffocating, remember that you are in the presence of a work of art and history, heritage of our country. The fines for transgressors are quite steep.
- Visit the Fountain when it gets dark: it has recently been equipped with a new and modern lighting, the visit during the evening or night is even more suggestive.
Historical notes, curiosities and practical info: what to know in brief
Although its origins are ancient, what we see today is the appearance that the fountain has assumed since 1732, the one given to it first by Nicola Salvi, who won a competition held by Clement XII, and then by Giuseppe Pannini in 1762, who he used the late Baroque style. It was also recently subjected to restoration, which started in July 2014 and ended in November 2015.
A coin thrown into the fountain, with your back to her, it is said that it will serve to ensure you a second visit to Rome. A second coin will allow you to find a great love, possibly Italian. A third coin will give you the certainty of getting married soon.
