"Toss a Coin!"
Tradition has it that throwing a coin over your left shoulder into the fountain guarantees a swift return to the world's most beautiful city. Anita Ekberg's dip in it was immortalized in Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita, and Italian actor Toto even sold it to an American, passing himself off as its owner. Earlier, Fontana di Trevi was the setting for the award-winning Three Coins in the Fountain motion picture, ensuring its popularity worldwide. Designed by Nicola Salvi for Pope Clemente XII, it was completed in the second half of the 18th Century. The statues in the center represent Neptune supported by Tritons on either side while rococo-style Poli Palace provides the perfect backdrop.

A short distance away from the legendary Trevi Fountain, the Vicus Caprarius (also known as La Città dell'Acqua or the City of Water) is an underground site that was excavated between 1999 and 2001. Today, it is located under the Cinema Trevi on the Vicolo del Puttarello street. A fine example of the mysteriously layered city of Rome, this historical site consists of a number of water cisterns, labyrinthine passages and staircases.

The fountain in the Piazza Colonna is made from a large octagonal marble tank that rests on two steps. The exterior is decorated with lions heads. The restoration it underwent in 1830 saw the addition of two dolphins whose intertwined tails are inserted in two open shells from which the water spurts out. A larger jet plays between these two smaller ones.

This large column was erected after the death of Marcus Aurelius to commemorate his victories over the barbarians. The reliefs on the column illustrate battle scenes and soldiers escorting files of prisoners. It is similar in style to Constantine's arch and it is probable that the same artist worked on both. The statue of Marcus Aurelius on the tip of the column was replaced by one of St Paul of which copies can be seen at the Museo della Civiltà Romana in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Construction of the Palazzo del Quirinale began in the late 16th Century, commissioned by Pope Gregory XIII, who chose the top of this hill as the location for the new papal residence. Various architects contributed to the design, including Carlo Maderno who devised the chapel, Bernini to whom one of the wings was entrusted, and Pietro da Cortona who decorated parts of the interior. It later became a royal palace, and is now the residence of the President of the Republic.

This ensemble composed from components of very different origin nonetheless works to create a harmonious whole. The statues of Castor and Pollux - collectively known as the Dioscuri - holding their horses in check was commissioned and placed on the square in 1588 by Pope Sixtus V.
