Throwing coins into the Trevi Fountain has become a ritual to the thousands of tourists who come from all over the world to visit Rome. There are actually two superstitious legends to explain why people are obsessed with throwing coins: the first says that if you throw a coin from your right hand backwards over your left shoulder, you will definitely return to Rome.

The second legend inspired the film “Three Coins in the Trevi Fountain”, which says you must throw three coins into the fountain: the first guarantees your return to Rome, the second leads to a new romance, while the third will lead to marriage!
