Tourists Threw More Than $1.5 Mil In Rome’s Trevi Fountain In A Year

If you know about the Trevi Fountain, you know that tourists love it! But did you realize how much money they throw into it!?

In Rome, the Trevi Fountain is one of the most famous locations. Legend has it, when a person throws a coin in the fountain, they will return to the city again. If one throws two coins in, they will meet the love of their life. If they throw three in, they will get married. Finally, one who throws four coins in the fountain will become wealthy!

But tourists aren’t supposed to throw coins in any old fashion. They are supposed to put their right hand over their left shoulder!

In 2017, tourists threw $1.6 million into the fountain! So you may be wondering, where does all this money go? All the collected funds are donated to charities, including shelters for poor people! Therefore, if you throw coins into the Trevi Fountain, you are not doing so in vain!
