I Wished For World Peace at the Trevi Fountain in Rome

The Trevi Fountain is one of those places in Rome that is overly romanticized. And this is no bull but I really wished for world peace at the Trevi Fountain. Though my life isn’t perfect, I’m already grateful for what I now have. I didn’t even think about that wish because every time I find a wishing well or fountain in my travels, I always have the same wish – and you guess it right – world peace!

The World’s Most Beautiful Fountain? Well, the locals named it the world’s most beautiful. While Rome has a lot of fountains, Trevi Fountain is the largest fountain in the city that is of Baroque style.

Nearby Attraction. The Spanish Steps is a walking distance from here.

Throw a Coin and Wish

It’s been said that when you throw a coin into the pool, you’re guaranteed to return to Rome. If you decide to throw the second time around, you’re in for a romantic relationship. The third coin thrown means wedding bells are coming your way. 😂 However, nowadays, people just throw coins and secretly wish for something and for anything, hoping it might come true.

Tre Vie. Literally means Three Streets. Go around the fountain and you’ll find all three streets lead here. Thus the name, Trevi Fountain, got its name.

Recycled Water. If you’re an environmentalist, don’t fret. Relax. The 2,824,800 cubic feet of water that comes out here are recycled. So, no water is wasted.

The Fountain Statues

The most visible statue in this fountain is the statue of the Ocean. You can’t miss him. The long beard and that muscular body are surefire to catch your attention, right? 😀 For more info about the statues, find it here.

The Crowd. Get ready. It’s packed and taking a selfie would be a challenge. 😀 I was planning to go really early in the morning but I was wasted the night before so… 😉

How to SAVE in Rome!

Rome and the Vatican are packed with places to see and history to marvel at. If you’re going to stay there for a few days only, it’s very impossible to squeeze everything you want to see. So, it is wise to do the Hop-on and Hop-Off Bus Pass for 24, 48, and 72 hours! This will save you time and you’ll see the places you’ve been dying to visit and have known of from the pages of history books.

Where to Stay in Rome

Hostel Alessandro Palace and Bar is your best bet in Rome. This hostel exceeded my expectations. The spacious rooms are secured with magnetic key cards and equipped with safe lockers for your valuables. You have to bring your own lock though. If you forgot to bring one, you can always buy one in their vending machine downstairs. They also have a bar that serves your alcohol needs. The staff are friendly and speaks English, too. The area has a lot of cafes, restaurants, and grocery shops. The Roman Colosseum is 30 minutes and the Trevi Fountain is 20 minutes walk from here. But, most of all, it’s less than 5 minutes walk to the Rome Central Station. Trains to the airport and to other parts of Italy start and end at this station. You can book your accommodations in Rome through HostelWorld and Booking.com.
