Trevi’s Fountain, Rome

Trevi’s Fountain; it is undoubtedly the most beautiful fountain of Rome. We visited it at twilight hour. Sun was withdrawing its rays and the lamps around were beginning to take over the role of glorifying its beauty. The mix of the sound of falling water and the oohs and aahs of the tourists around was strangely very pleasing to my audio senses. You have to crawl over the crowds to reach the fountain and squeeze yourself to sit over the edge of the fountain. Of course tourists around understand. And yes, I too tossed a coin into the fountain with a hope to revisit this great city again.



The figures are of Neptune at center, Tritons on either sides. The one on right is trying to control an unruly seahorse; the one in the left is more tamed. They symbolize the two contrasting moods of the sea.

    Wow, look at that crowd! It reminds me of the Angkor Wat temple, people are just everywhere and you tend to brush elbows with the masses as you go through just to get a good glimpse of the temple!

    There does seem to be some very special places that are almost never free of the "maddening crowd"! Terrific captures in spite of the crowd, Indrani! It is indeed an awesome sight! Thanks for sharing, as always! Hope your week is off to a great start!

    So many great things to photograph in Rome. Battling the crowd must not have been too much fun, though.

    It's lovely, isn't it? Easy to understand why the tourists flock there to see and photograph.
