Trevi Fountain

Rome, Italy

Toss a coin over your shoulder into Rome’s Trevi Fountain and start planning your next trip to Rome. Legend says that when you leave money in the sculpted pool, you are guaranteed to return to the Eternal City. And why not return? You’ll have another chance to explore the marble statues frolicking on the water-cascading facade. Along with muscular representations of the ocean, health and abundance, there are 30 species of plants intricately carved into the fountain.
