Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountain

The first fountain Pope Nicholas V built in the middle of the 15th century to celebrate the reactivation of the ancient aqueduct which Agrippa constructed in order to bring water to his baths near the Pantheon.

The fountain you see now in Piazza della Fontana di Trevi was designed by Nicola Salvi for Pope Clement XII. It took 30 years to complete and was inaugurated May 1762.

There is no street with a direct approach to the Trevi Fountain, so you hear it before you see it.
