    ROME'S HISTORIC TREVI PALACE, WHICH FORMS THE ARCHITECTURAL BACKGROUND TO ONE OF THE WORLD'S FAMOUS FOUNTAINS, IS UP FOR SALE. PRICE: TWO MILLION DOLLARS (ABOUT GBP714,000).

    THE OFFER APPEARED IN A JOURNAL PUBLISHED IN ROME FOR AMERICANS. THE AGENTS SAY THE PALACE WOULD BE IDEAL FOR PRESTIGE PREMISES TO SERVE AS AN EMBASSY, HOTEL OR OFFICE BLOCK. FIVE BIDS HAVE SO FAR BEEN MADE FOR THE BUILDING.
