“Too Many People”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

I threw a coin into this fountain 18 years ago...and I did return to Italy. But a lot has changed in almost two decades and the crowds of tourists never stop. It really does spoil this magnificent work! I did not toss in another coin. While Italy has lots to do and see the entire country is over crowded with tourists...and we are simply dollar signs to the Italians.

“Go there, throw your coin, take a picture and have some gelato.”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

I think it is a must see, and it is a beautiful fountain. There wasn't much else to do once you saw the fountain and took the requisite pictures.

“Not the romantic image it conjures from the photos”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

Noisy, a bit dirty and whilst we were there someone attempted to steal coins from the fountain floor.
It was impossible to spend any more than a minute or two close to the fountain and throw your coins in and be alone with your thoughts.
