So let's start, as I told before the best way is start from Piazza Spagna and look below the itinerary. This option is great if you start at 07:00 - 09:00 am.

If you arrived in Rome at night or early in the morning, then you can start in the afternoon, then postpone Trevi for another time, moreover, if it is important for you to take a photo against the backdrop of the Trevi Fountain where there are few people, then it’s better to come to the fountain 05:00-07:00 in summer, at other times, you can take a perfect photo until 08:00.
