Trevi District

The Trevi district is consists of two parts: the upper section which is the main area of the Quirinal Hill and the lower part which is along the Tiber River.

There are several stories about how the area got its name. According to one story, its name was derived from the Latin word “trivium” which refers to the three main roads of the district. These three main roads converge at Piazza dei Crociferi. The most famous landmark of the district is the Trevi Fountain.
