Rome is one of Europe's most popular destinations. And the Trevi Fountain - immortalized in the film "La Dolce Vita" - is one of the city's most visited monuments. But keeping it clean is a challenge.
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.
After announcing hefty fines for snacking tourists, the Italian capital has now dispatched patrols to enforce behavior. Several tourists have been seen bathing in the fountain.
A rare snowfall has paralyzed Italy's capital, forcing authorities to shut schools and send in the army to help clear the streets. The Colosseum, the Roman Forum and other major tourist sites were closed to visitors.
