There are some places in Rome that so capture the imagination that they become undisputed symbols immediately linked with the Italian national identity, especially for those who watch us from afar. The Trevi Fountain is for this, and many other reasons, a must-see landmark. After all, it was here that the most famous scene in the most famous Italian movie of all time took place – La Dolce Vita by Federico Fellini, 1960, with Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni. Just a fifteen minute walk from the Hotel Savoy, it is the largest and one of the most famous fountains in all of Rome, if not the most famous in the world.
The great fountain, designed by Nicola Salvi and located at one side of Palazzo Poli, was inaugurated in 1735 and belongs to the late-Baroque period. The walk from Piazza di Spagna to the Trevi Fountain is one of the loveliest in the entire city.
