    The Fontana di Trevi or Trevi Fountain is the most famous and arguably the most beautiful fountain in all of Rome. This impressive monument dominates the small Trevi square located in the Quirinale district.

    The central figure of the fountain, in front of a large niche, is Neptune, god of the sea. He is riding a chariot in the shape of a shell, pulled by two sea horses. Each sea horse is guided by a Triton. One of the horses is calm and obedient, the other one restive. They symbolize the fluctuating moods of the sea. On the left hand side of Neptune is a statue representing Abundance, the statue on the right represents Salubrity.

    The square is very crowed with many people coming to see this beautiful fountain.

    The water at the bottom of the fountain represents the sea. Legend has it you will return to Rome if you throw a coin into the water. You should toss it over your shoulder with your back to the fountain.

      Dennis, I think of all you have posted this one touches me the most. The magnitude of the beauty of this fountain, is beyond description, and yet you did a wonderful job of doing so.

      I do believe many movie scenes have been shot in front of this fountain, and it is I would think one of the most romantic places to be at sunrise with a partner when not one else was anywhere around, But that is the Pisces in me and my love for the sea. A bit of a romantic when I see such beauty.

      hugs and smiling
