“Legend says that if a visitor tosses coins over his shoulder into the Trevi Fountain he will one day return to Rome. The Trevi Fountain is one of the best known landmarks in Rome because of its fable, but also because of its fancy carvings. The fountain was shown in a 1954 movie, 'Three Coins in the Fountain.'”
Pamphlet, Mario is Missing!

The Trevi Fountain (Italian: Fontana di Trevi) is a famous landmark in Rome, built in 1762. It is said to ensure anyone who throws coins into the fountain will return to the city.

In all versions of Mario is Missing!, some coins are stolen from the fountain by marauding Koopa Troopas, which forces the fountain to close to visitors. When Luigi visits Rome, he must defeat a Koopa carrying the coins, return them to the Trevi Fountain's information booth, and prove their authenticity by answering various questions (listed below). Afterward, he is given $1500 as a reward.

Mario Kart series[edit]

The Trevi Fountain appears as one of the landmarks in the Rome Avanti 3 course in Mario Kart Tour, where players glide over the fountain. Note Blocks appear over the fountain in the T variant, while colored Water Geysers spout out of it in the R/T variant.

The Trevi Fountain returns in Tour Rome Avanti in the Booster Course Pass DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The fountain is now properly flowing, rather than being static as in Mario Kart Tour, and its waters can now be driven through as an underwater section.
