You can take a photo of the largest fountain in Rome without tourists except in the early morning, when the whole city is still peacefully sleeping. However, every visitor of the city, who has come here for the first time, has to see this beauty with his own eyes. It is believed that if you throw a coin into the fountain, you get every chance to return to Rome again. It is said that two coins will lead you to a romantic date, three to the wedding, four to untold riches, and five to the separation. The amount of coins annually pulled out of the fountain demonstrates the strength of travelers' faith in miracles, as well as the number of city guests visited the fountain. In 2017, 1.4 million euros were pulled out of the fountain.
