Rome is a magical city. It’s where past meets present. It’s the eternal city. It’s good food, amazing smells and lovely people. So what is one thing you have to do when you go to Rome? Throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, of course!

Why?

According to popular belief, if you a throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain, you are guaranteed a return trip to Rome. So how do you properly do this? It’s easy!

1. Stand (or sit) with your back facing the Trevi Fountain

2. Make a wish

3. Throw your coin with your right hand over your left shoulder in the fountain

4. Start practicing Italian and living la dolce vita because you are heading back to Italy!

 

If you are wondering where your coin goes, they are collected every day and donated to local Rome charities - from a supermarket that feed the less fortunate to the Italian Red Cross.
