TOUR Rome - Baroque Rome, Piazza, and Fountains (aired March 13th@10:00am)
The Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona are a few of the highlights of this tour. Along the way we see fountains and more spectacular piazzas and palazzi.
FUN FACT#1: Rome has approximately 2000 fountains between big and small. The drinking fountains are called “nasoni” which means big noses, and drinking from them is a Roman art in itself. We will show you how…
FUN FACT#2: Visitors throw in the fountain up to 3,000 euros ($600) per day! In fact, every year about one million euros is collected from the fountain and donated to several charities. But don’t try to walk into the water. The fine is around $500!
