Rafael's Roma Vacation Episode III - Trevi Fountain

Episode III

Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountain是Nicola Salvi的作品。這真是一個美麗的地方,雕像比我預期的更大,
像Spanish Steps,我們來了這裡兩次,在旅程開始和結束時。您還可以吃到這裡著名
的冰淇淋gellato!如果你投硬幣到噴泉,即是說你會再次回到羅馬... 我真的想回到那裡去!

Trevi Fountain is the work of Nicola Salvi. It’s a really beautiful place, the statues are bigger
 than I expected and just like the Spanish Steps, we came here twice - at the start and the end of the trip.
 You can also get a famous gellato ice cream here as well! If you throw coins into the fountain,
 it is said you will make a return trip to Rome...I would like to return there!

"A traditional legend holds that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome.
 Among those who are unaware that the "three coins" of Three Coins in the Fountain were thrown by three
 different individuals, a reported current interpretation is that two coins will lead to a new romance and three
 will ensure either a marriage or divorce. A reported current version of this legend is that it is lucky to throw
 three coins with one's right hand over one's left shoulder into the Trevi Fountain.

An estimated 3,000 euros are thrown into the fountain each day. The money has been used to subsidize a
 supermarket for Rome's needy. However, there are regular attempts to steal coins from the fountain."

    I really love that fountain and I did throw a £1 coin into the water. Ha ha... So touristy! Did you go back at night? It's equally mesmerising at night too. I went to back to see many buildings there twice both day and night.

    Re: Heaven’s Gate / 天堂的大门 / Pintu Pagar Syurga / 天国のゲート

    I come Malaysia originally. I am still Malaysian despite of living in Britain for a long time. Don't know why so many people want to become British... Most of them explain that so they can visit more countries visa-free. That's actually quite sad.

    Re: Venice, Italy / 意大利·威尼斯

    I went to visit my university friends. They're really friendly, even put me up for a week at their place! So I had a proper Italian "home stay" experience. We explored most parts of Northern Italy.

    I also met my childhood friend, whose family moved to Milan from my hometown in Malaysia. His father was a priest. It was a so good to see him after all these years. His Italian was superb!

    Walking along the Thames is one of the most relaxing things to do!

  4. I threw coins in the fountain too!
    Yeah, it's very touristy, but I did it... haha! ^.^
    I visit back to many places at night,
    but with tourist bus... so didn't take many night shots...
    Thanks for your reply, let me know more about you! ^.^

    I actually walked back to those places.
    My hotel was very near the main railway station, can't remember its name... So it's pretty handy.

    Walking is the best way to explore a new place!

  6. Gorgeous~~ by looking at these photos, just wish to fly there right away! No wonder you wanna go back again!

  7. To London Caller,
    Totally agree with you, walking is the best way to explore a new place,
    specially Rome, everything are so close,
    can see lots of spots walking around there,
    but was so cold at night... so I decided staying in the bus,
    continue my visit during at night... so didn't took lots of night shots,
    I'm a bit lazy... hehe... ^.^

  8. To micki,

    and is so easy to get all the hot spots...
