Trevi Fountain is a commonly visited tourist spot, and I heard that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, you are ensured to return back to Rome. I’m not one to follow legends too closely, but if there is any opportunity to increase my odds of returning to Rome, I’ll believe in superstition.
While making my way through intolerable crowding, I became increasing aware of the possibility of pick-pockets. With tourists from around the world searching in their pockets, purses, and wallets for money to toss into the fountain, the likelihood of petty crime was obvious. I threw caution and coins to the wind and wished for a quick and safe return to Rome.
A nice replica of the fountain can be found at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The similarities are uncanny.
