Everyone knows the famous Trevi Fountain, less known is the underground passages that stretch beneath the Trevi district: an intricate maze of ancient vestiges dating back to Roman Times that await to be rediscovered. The underground archaeological area of Vicus Caprarius – the "City of Water" consist of the structures of an imperial domus, later used as the castellum aquae of the Virgin Aqueduct and small museum filled with Roman artefacts. We will follow the path of the ancient Aqueduct of Aqua Virgo and learn how it worked and its history, including remains hidden in the modern city. This includes spotting a secret stretch with a hidden door and the well-preserved part under a flashy shopping mall. We will continue in this quest to the Famous Piazza di Spagna, the Spanish Steps, to discover the ancient link with the Roman aqueducts away from the crowds.
