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

There are a few tours in English a day but visitors from other countries book them if they can't get one in their own language. Make sure you book on the official website.
