Why bother pushing your way to the front of the Trevi Fountain queue. Go around the corner and explore this amazing Roman villa with loads of artifacts and Trevi fountain water flowing in. A place of tranquility and amazement.

For €3 this was a very short and sweet snippet of historical Roman life. It was very quiet when I visited and provided much needed rest bite from the Trevi crowds. Would definitely recommend a 30 minute visit here.

A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is
all about action. From early morning through the wee
hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a
never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or
take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming
gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of
hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle
are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you
