The Trevi Fountain unveiled again

Whether you’ve been to Rome before or not, there is now even more reason to return or to visit now. In early November 2015, the Trevi Fountain has been returned to its natural glory. For over 15 months, works have been in progress to restore this magnificent monument to its original beauty. Over the past months, visitors have been able to see glimpses of the masterpiece but nothing quite prepares you for the fountain as it once was. The most thorough restoration in the fountain’s history, Italian fashion house Fendi have spent over 2 million euros.  It seems to be ‘in fashion’ for iconic brands to fund these restorations and we can’t wait to see the revival of the Colosseum funded by Tod’s, and the Spanish Steps by Bulgari.

Legend says

The perfect photo spot in Rome, discover the Trevi Fountain now re-filled with emerald water and ready for you to toss your coin to secure that you will return to Rome. A ritual for all tourists, this act has many superstitious meanings. Some say throw it once, you’ll return to Rome, twice and you’ll fall in love, three times and you’ll get married! Why not give your love, whether it’s for the city or your loved one, a chance and get ready with your coins!
