Trevi Fountain, Rome, Italy

I only knew of the existence of this fountain when I got to know the song 'Three Coins in the Fountain' sung by Connie Francis, years ago. When a package holiday to Europe was planned a visit to the TreviFountain was included in the itinerary. The Fountain was the creation of Nicola Salvi, way back in the year 1762 having the dimension Dimensions 26.3 m × 49.15 m (86 ft × 161.3 ft) A beautiful piece of art is what I saw when I arrived there and as per norm I too threw 3 coins and made my 3 wishes. I do not remember what those wishes were but it was a great experience being there. Some of you would have been there too. Do you remember what your wishes were or would you want to go there if you have not gone there yet?

@allknowing A few years ago a man was convicted of stealing after he had made a lot of money picking the coins out of the fountain every night. Personally I don't really see how gathering coins that people have thrown away can be considered stealing.

It is disgusting that I could have made so many typos in my post. I have made the corrections. Thanks for showing them to me. I knew it was called Trevi and was in fact enamoured when I saw the date when I was searching for info.
