You don't have to fly to Rome to throw three coins in its world-famous fountain. Head to the Mercer County Italian-American Festival, where visitors can toss coins into the pool of a Fountain of Trevi more than half the size of the original in Italy as the actors did in the 1954 Academy-award nominated movie, "Three Coins in the Fountain." 

The festival takes place the last weekend of the month and is expected to draw thousands of guests.
