Trevi Fountain -- Rome

From 2006 family trip to visit Nina in France at school, we did a side trip to Rome. This is a picture of the Trevi Fountain from the side. The sculpture is quite amazing, but the crowds is what attracted me. According to Google, they throw 3,000 euros into the fountain every day. Tne money is used to support a food pantry. The legend that we heard says that if a visitor throws a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome. Other sayings relate that two coins thrown will lead to a new romance and three will ensure either a marriage or divorce. Well, we threw one coin so I can't wait to get a chance to visit Rome again.
