Italy Rome-Trevi Fountain

Rome is famous for its fountains. Just walk around Rome and you'll chance upon a fountain surrounded by sculptures of gods/heroes very easily. The Trevi Fountain is still my favourite, given it's size and the beauty of the sculptures. There are many people just love to sit around and stare at it for hours. People also toss coins into the fountain over their back... supposedly will help them return to their eternal life (whatever that means). Actually about the tossing coins, Legend has it you will return to Rome if you throw a coin into the water. You should toss it over your shoulder with your back to the fountain. Of course we all took turns throwing coins into the fountains so it looks like we'll be returning to Rome sometime in our future. Whatever it means, it is fun anyway.
