Trevi Fountain

I’ve posted photos from this spot a few times in the past.  And I’ll probably post a few more in the future, because it is easily my favorite fountain in the world…. At least at this point.  As you probably know, this fountain is in the Trevi district of Rome Italy.  It is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world.  They started renovations on the fountain to make it more grand in 1732 and finished the job in 1762.  It was refurbished in 1988, 1998 and again in 2014.  Thankfully the renovations just involved cleaning, repair and replacement of light.  It’s hard to imagine they could improve the 1732 design.

Interestingly, like many famous tourist sites, it is covered with hundreds (maybe thousands depending on the time of day) tourists.  So, getting a shot without people in the way is tough.  Below is a behind the scene photo to give you an idea of what I mean.
