If you haven't seen "Roman Holiday" with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, please rent it, buy it, or borrow it, and watch it. Audrey Hepburn may have won an Oscar for her performance, but Rome also had a starring role and many of the iconic sites are featured in the movie.
The Trevi Fountain has starred in more movies than any other fountain I can think of, but it was closed for renovations. People were still tossing coins into the construction site, water or no water.
Not all fountains are famous, and not all of them work in Rome :(
Thankfully some fountains in Rome worked beautifully:)
The Spanish Steps were also closed for renovations.
The Bocca della Verità, made famous in the US by the movie "Roman Holiday" was open, but the lines were so long for a photo op with a hand in its mouth, that I simply snapped this one through the gate.
This cute little red Fiat was parked nearby as if it was waiting for a close up, so I played paparazzi :)
