Behind the Lens: The Trevi Fountain

The Trevi Fountain is one of the most famous fountains in the world, and certainly the most famous in Rome.  That’s saying quite a bit, considering Rome is chock full of fountains.  By the way, Rome has the coolest, tastiest water I have ever sampled, and it’s said that the ancient aqueduct structure still provides enough pressure to run each fountain spout about two feet into the air. Absolutely amazing, considering modern plumbing seems to fail in epic proportions when it comes to maintaining water pressure.

Tradition holds that if a visitor throws a coin into the fountain, they will see Rome again. Three Coins in the Fountain brings a big wish.

I couldn’t pass that up.  So far, that wish is definitely coming true.
