After nearly a year and a half of renovation work, one of Rome's most spectacular monuments is back in all its glory, the Trevi fountain. The Italian fashion house Fendi paid 2 million euros for the restoration and it's already drawing the crowds.
Every year, some ten million tourists come to Rome. One authentically Italian way of taking in the city's sights is on a Vespa scooter. We give it a whirl, visiting sites like the Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain.
It was not the first time the waters of Rome's Trevi Fountain have bled. The Italian activist behind the stunt is a well-known repeat offender.
Some 1.4 million euros (1.5 million dollars) collected from Rome's Trevi Fountain last year have been donated to Catholic charity Caritas.
Every year, millions of tourists throw coins into Rome's Trevi Fountain. Legend says that in doing so, you ensure a return to the eternal city. But what actually happens to all the money thrown into the waters?
