Fast Facts

Rome is home to over 2,000 fountains, more than any other city in the world.

In ancient Rome, it was considered lucky to see a priest, white horse or hunchback. Today, those who get to return to the Eternal City are truly blessed.

Legend claims that throwing a coin into the Trevi Fountain, ensures a return visit to Rome. These coins are given to an Italian charity called Caritas that uses the collections to provide grocery cards to Rome’s needy. So there’s plenty of good luck all around!
