Trevi Fountain Selfie

I too have taken a selfie at the Trevi fountain, without any violence I may add! 


Thanks to social media, the need to capture the perfect selfie is rife and this desire to look your best in amazing locations has caused some fisticuffs over at the Trevi fountain. 

According to reports, two women wanted to take a selfie in the same spot in front of the fountain, angry words were exchanged and eventually, a fight broke out which also involved each of the women's family members!

8 people in total ended up fighting and police officers had to step in to stop the fight. 

Fist-fights at popular tourist spots aren't the only problems selfies are causing as a family run business, which grows sunflowers, had to deal with 7,000 cars worth of people marching on their farm a few weeks ago in search of the perfect sunflower-filled selfie

Perhaps this selfie obsession is one of the reasons why more than half of Brits avoid some of the most beautiful locations when on holiday and really, who can blame them!
