The area
Neighbourhood: Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
How to get there
  • Barberini - Fontana di Trevi • 8 min walk

The area is very busy as you can expect. As busy as it gets. At the same time, the surroundings have everything you need in terms of souvenirs and gelato, restaurants, among others.

Of course, and it goes without saying, you will always need to be careful with your belongings when you are around such busy areas.

This is a small public space just in front of the landmark Trevi Fountain in the heart of Rome. In addition to seeing the remarkably beautiful fountain, there are Baroque churches in the area, lots of gelato shops, casual "touristy" restaurants and retail shops and as should be expected, quite heavy crowds much of the day. Pass by first thing in the morning for more leisurely visits and consider a night visit as well to see the fountain against dark sky, lit up with floodlights.

Piazza di Trevi is all about the Trevi Fountain, easily acclaimed as the world's most famous fountain. No disrespect to the piazza, but this is a classic example whereby visitors will not notice what else is in the piazza other than its centerpiece attraction. Tourists who throng the area only have one mission in mind - snake their way through the crowds to the fountain for a selfie or to perform the ritual of throwing a coin while making a wish. Perpetually crowded during the day time, this place is a haven for pickpockets. Your best bet for a peaceful respite here is during the early hours of the morning.

This piazza is very busy and crowded. However, the centerpiece is the beautiful Trevi fountain. You really do not notice the restaurants and shops nearby. It's great to see open outdoor dining for great people watching as you walk away from the fountain.

Since trevi fountain has its own item this is just for the square. It does have some stores with nice ice cream and pizza slices, and does have a nice fountain. Overcrowded during daytime

Watch your valuables. This is a spot where thieves and pick-pockets apply their trade.

The Trevi Fountain is beautiful-see separate reviews. Other than the Trevi Fountain there is no reason to visit the piazza

The Trevi Fountain is definitely worth seeing at least once which also means you will see the Piazza. If you do your research you will find many good restaurants nearby that are not just tourist traps. There is a large police presence in this area so it feels safe but there are some men who may put you out so make sure to leave your valuables safe and don't put yourself in awkward situations. Go there and enjoy the fountain and the area around it. There are some cool museums nearby as well that are worth checking out but the Piazza can get quite busy during the day time. I found when I went it was least busy early in the morning and stays busy from 9 am to 10 pm.

As usual the best of Rome. But very crowded. Best time to visit very early or late at night. Just a museum by itself. Beautiful

The piazza is completely synonymous with the Trevi Fountain. The fountain is the star attraction here. It’s the largest, most beautiful and certainly the most famous of all Rome’s 2000+ fountains.
We detoured past it more than once just so that we could see it again. It looked quite different in the day when the white marble gleamed in the sun compared to the evening, when it is bathed in soft golden lighting.
It is difficult to pass through the piazza due to the throng of tourists. However if you are patient, you can almost always get a spot close to the water’s edge and sit and take in the whole thing. Even when the crowd is heaving, most people only stay long enough for a selfie, then move on.
The other point of interest here is the Church of Santi Vincenzo e Anastasio. It stands overlooking the fountain and is all but forgotten by tourists.
It is doomed to be forever in the shadow of the fountain.
Despite the crowds outside, we had the church almost to ourselves.
It was not well lit inside which gave it a dark and gloomy atmosphere. However on a hot day, it was a nice, cool break from the sun.
The really curious thing about this church is that the viscera (or guts) of popes were kept here in special jars. This strange practice went on for centuries until Pope Pius X put an end to it in the early 1900s.
Not surprisingly, there are several cafes and gelato places in and near the piazza. It was too crowded for us to want to stop in the piazza itself but just down the road, we found a great little place, Cantina dei Papi Trevi, a small traditional prosciutteria where we had the best porchetta rolls.
