Two tourists who decided to beat the heat by taking a dip in Rome’s Trevi Fountain have been ordered to pay a $500 fine. Designed by the Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Pietro Bracci, the Trevi Fountain dates back to 1612 and is one of the most famous Baroque fountains in the world. The tourists, who were visiting from California, were the most recent visitors to take a dip in the Italian landmark. Earlier in the month, three women splashed around in the fountain, angering residents.
