Trevi Fountain in Rome

The Trevi Fountain was completed in 1762 and has been packed with tourists seeking selfies throwing a coin over their shoulder every day since.

In fact, the day Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni danced in the fountain in La Dolce Vita is the only time the square has been without people since.

This stunning image of the fountain from the sky was captured in May in the midst of a city-wide quarantine in response to the early surge of Coronavirus that hit Italy. As a nation, they’ve done well to flatten the curve and I look forward to returning to Tevi Fountain for some delicious gelato someday soon.
