Trevi

Join the masses and toss your pennies into Trevi's iconic fountain.

Trevi exceeds the meaning of photo-op. Thousands of visitors flock through this famous neighborhood with the purpose of documenting idyllic streetscapes, fashionable monuments, and staged candid moments. Boutique hotels, kitschy shops, and comfortable ristorantes surround Trevi’s iconic fountain (and its camera-filled epicenter). This central neighborhood’s crowds may seem unappealing, but they impart a palpable energy that lasts through the night.

The Trevi area is primarily known as a business district.  In general, these busy commercial areas mean there are many day-trippers and tourists. Though there are very few accommodating squares that facilitate any form of chatting, you will run into neighbors for early morning and late afternoon dog walking, and during a trip to the local outdoor market, bar, or dry cleaner."
