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.
