According to TripAdvisor, of over 2,000 things you can do in Rome, visiting the Trinita' dei Monti is in the top 200. Meaning, it’s one of the most popular places to visit and take some fun selfies along one of the 138 steps!
Unfortunately, as we all know, the Coronavirus has hit Italy harder than any other country so far, and their quarantine restrictions have become more and more strict as time goes on. This has given photographers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to document this special area and it’s staircase in all its “ordinary” beauty and glory, without all the chaos and people.

Making a wish and then throwing coins into fountains is a tradition practiced by millions of people from all over the world. It’s been estimated that about 1,200 people visit the Trevi Fountain in a single hour! Wild, right?
Now, the mythical fountain looks more beautiful than ever. Additionally, we can all now enjoy some calm, clean waves without a mass of people throwing their change in every few seconds.
