Trevi Fountain, Rome

A classic example of Baroque art, Trevi Fountain is the setting of the iconic scene between Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni in Federico Felini's 1960 "La Dolce Vita." The fountain, a short walk from the Pantheon, is one of Rome's top attractions.<br>

Tradition holds that if you throw one coin in the fountain over your shoulder, you'll return to Rome; two coins and you'll find romance in Rome; three coins and you'll marry in Rome.<br>
