Cliche, perhaps.  Too many tourists, oh sure.  But during my trip to Rome in 2007–my first–I wouldn’t go back to the hotel for the night until I’d gazed upon the Trevi Fountain yet again–it is that beautiful.  Best yet, a tiny cafe on a corner nearby had what I thought was the best macchiato in town.

Of course, I threw more than one coin into that fountain and here I am, returning 2-1/2 years later.
