Top ways to experience Trevi Fountain
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.

    Impressive Fountain
    I went by the fountain on several different days and it does get quite crowded. I went early one morning before 7 am and there were about two dozen people there. The proper way to toss a coin into the fountain is with your right hand and to throw it over your left shoulder with your back to the fountain. If you plan to throw a second and third coin, you throw them separately.

    Return visit to Rome
    You can’t not see the Trevi fountain when in Rome. It is amazing. Obviously VERY VERY crowded. However I threw a coin into the fountain almost 50 years ago and this was my return visit to see it!once more!

    Take two photos
    I think this is a bit over rated, there are so many beautiful fountains and sculptures all over Rome, but this is the place where so many tourist meet up, due to media exposure. We went during the day and also in the evening, hundreds of people taking photos. The atmosphere in the evening is worth a visit

    Stunning
    A must visit that is free. However, it will be packed. Just gotta fight your way down to the front. There is a church right across from the fountain that has a raised front. Great for pics of the fountain. There are tons of places to eat and shop.

    Where beauty meets vanity
    The Trevi Fountain is beautiful, mysterious, a lot to take in. We visited at 8 AM. Even at that hour, 99% of the visitors were there for selfies and/or photos of others in front of the fountain. It was so sad to watch hundreds of people preening, posing, fighting for the best angle, etc., with their backs to the thing of true beauty, then walk off once they had their photos...of themselves.

    A Must See for every visitor
    A must see in Rome - go early or late for best views without all the crowds. You will still see many throwing a coin over the shoulder and making a wish! At night the lighting is beautiful.

    A stunning masterpiece
    It’s one thing to see this fountain in movies and photos but seeing it in person just took my breath away. Of course there are crowds but that didn’t stop us from going twice: afternoon and after dark. A stunning 18th century masterpiece.

    Amazing! Go early to avoid biggest crowds.
    The Trevi Fountain was absolutely stunning and a definite must-see while in Rome. To avoid the heavier crowds, we visited early in the morning, arriving about 8:15am. Even at that hour there were a lot of people around. We took in the beauty of the fountain and got some pictures but left after about 15 minutes as the crowds seemed to grow by the minute. I wish we could have gotten back to see it at nighttime also, but that was not in the cards for us this trip.

    Had me in tears
    I have seen pictures and videos of the trevi fountain my whole life and seeing it today in person was just incredible. It had me in tears. It’s gorgeous. I know it’s just a fountain but it’s truly breathtaking. It’s a very busy area and we went at night. I don’t think there’s a great time to go other than early in the morning like 6 am. However, despite the crowds everyone was very respectful with allowing others to take their pictures and move on. We threw coins and drank the water. An awesome experience and must see!

    Busy; be early
    The Trevi is very popular and crowds get very big from lunchtime onwards, so you best get there between 9am and 11am to get a good view. It’s also worth visiting the nearby archaeological site that was dug out under the fountain around 2005. It has managed to restore an apartment from around 400AD. It takes about half an hour to see and you should book a time with the staff on your way to the fountain and then go back to it.

Whilst the Trevi Fountain is an amazing peice of art work and a Must see, I don't understand why the crowds have to be so rude. Yes it's going to always be busy but do you really need that Fake photo 20 times of tossing a coin?

The trevi fountain is of course beautiful, but the crowds are abhorrent, since we were jet lagged we were up in the wee hours of the morning and went back to take another look, it was the best decision we made.

Extremely crowded and not worth the time to fight to get pictures with 100’s of other people we don’t know on the photos…. Tourists were very rude and inconsiderate….

Super grand Trevi Fountain. It was crowded with people that we couldn't take a family picture without other bystanders blocking the corners of the fountain and the building. It was still fascinating to see.

The official roped up the area for some reason, but it didn't seem to affect how well we see it. Perhaps the activists defaced the monument not so long ago.

Fountain is spectacular and very interesting, but there are always huge crowds (see photos). Around the fountain there are many shops, cafes, ice cream shops and cafes. The fountain is built where ends one of the ancient Roman aqueducts.

It's an amazing work of art and very impressive, but was so overcrowded that we didn't stay too long. It's in quite a small square and there isn't a great deal of room around it for people to spread out. I just pushed my way to the front, took a couple of photos and then went on my way.

This is a must see for any tourist visiting Rome. The intricate sculptures show so much detail and history. It’s very easy to spend hours in this area. If you need a break from the fountain, located nearby are some good restaurants and gelato shops. We try to arrive very early in morning. You’ll get much better photos of the fountain. If you arrive late morning or early afternoon, you’ll have to fight your way through the large crowds of people. Be sure to toss a coin in the fountain. Tradition has it that if you do, you’ll return to the city again one day.

The fountain is absolutely beautiful, but the experience of visiting it is terrible. Sure, it is very crowded and everyone wants to take a nice picture, but people go crazy and try to push you to get a place, instead of just waiting for someone to go and leave a spot.
Be prepared to be pushed, or even yelled at!

Been to see this on many occasions and remember when you could actually have plenty of space to throw your money in, Really beautiful fountain but sadly so many tourists you can't get near it even in March.

Definitely have to visit here when in Rome! It is so beautiful in the night and day, however it can be quite overcrowded in the middle of the day so try to go earlier in the day if possible!
