THE TREVI FOUNTAIN ........ROME .....MAKE A WISH


The Trevi Fountain (Italian: Fontana di Trevi)[1] is the largest — standing 25.9 meters (85 feet) high and 19.8 meters (65 feet) wide — and most ambitious of the Baroque fountains of Rome. It is located in the rione of Trevi.

small street to walk to the Trevi fountain

must walk pass a small market
but this little place is so OLD but very pretty
so I call out loud
DEREK SNAP IT
KKEKEKEK

COOL RIGHT ?

look at the amount of people above .
is a very small square
the location of the fountain
I don't believe when I arrive
I always think this fountain will be locate at a big square
but is not

Pre-1629 history of the aqueduct and the fountain site



Coin throwing

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 ensure a marriage will occur soon, while three coins leads to a 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.

Approximately 3,000 Euros are thrown into the fountain each day and are collected at night. The money has been used to subsidize a supermarket for Rome's needy. However, there are regular attempts to steal coins from the fountain, including some using a magnetized pole.


Uncle Lee ask me did I make a wish when I am there
OH YES !
I did
but I wish..............." when u make a wish must not say out loud only keep to myself "
my mum in law told me when we thrown a penny into the fountain
is to make a wish for return .......
well I wish for some other thing is more important at that moment
but I do hope to return for a visit again
I only thrown one coin but Derek also thrown one too :)
