In a way I felt slightly disappointed with this place, as it had been compared with the Domus Aurea and I liked that one a lot better. You can't really compare them, they are very different. Still, a fascinating place that is worth visiting. A...More

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

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.
