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.
