Completed in 1762, the area surrounding the famed Trevi Fountain is nearly always packed, thanks in no small part to its association with such iconic films as Roman Holiday and La Dolce Vita. Brown says the best time to come here is in the early evening, when the bluish evening light mixes with the fountain and street lights and the romance of the city emerges in full force, as couples stroll through the square and take their cocktails at the nearby cafés.
