    In the future, I'd like to travel to Italy. One of the places I want to visit is the Trevi Fountain. I've been told that it's located in a pretty cramped area, and that I'd need a super-wide lens to capture the entire fountain in one image.

    Anyone with experience taking photos of the Trevi Fountain? And if yes, how wide of a lens would I need for the job? Would 28mm (in equivalent focal length) be wide enough? Or do I need super wide stuff?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Ray! Those photos give me a much better idea of how much space I have in front of the fountain! I think the Oly m9-18 should do the trick. Not sure if I'd be able to stand right in front, and capture the whole thing with the 14/2.5 though. 9mm should do the trick though.

    Any idea what those behinds in front of the fountain, in front of the steps are? Hotel? A photo from the third floor looking at the fountain would be great!

    No idea. Sorry. If it is a hotel, it's likely VERY expensive and difficult to get into if you're not a paying customer...
