Tourists in Rome toss coins into Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain style

Coins rain down on top of Roman ruins.

A new trend in Rome sees tourists throwing coins into the Roman Forum – imitating the Trevi Fountain ritual – in the hopes of a return to the Eternal City.

A growing number of visitors can be seen tossing coins into the Forum from the panoramic viewpoint below the Campidoglio on the Capitoline Hill.

Some of the tourists mimick the over-the-shoulder tradition associated with the Trevi Fountain while others aim for their coins to land directly on top of Roman ruins.

The trend has been going for some years but has gained momentum recently and has been the focus of recent news reports in Rome.

Vatican Museums to raise ticket prices in 2024

The Vatican Museums is to raise the price of its ordinary full entry tickets to €20, up from €17, with effect from 1 January 2024.

There will be no change to the reduced fare, for those who are entitled to it, neither will there be any change to the reduced entry ticket which will remain unchanged at €8.

The price hike is “strictly linked to the general increase in costs”, according to a statement on the museums’ website, which also said that the non-compulsory reservation fee of €5 “remains confirmed”.

The Vatican Museums recently announced that it will be extending its opening hours from 08.00 until 19.00, also with effect from 1 January 2024, as part of a major shake-up of its admission policies ahead of Jubilee 2025.
