Hardly anyone will leave Rome without first having thrown a coin into the Trevi Fountain. And at the same time, among these people, hardly anyone will have visited the hidden underground, which is right next to the Trevi Fountain. Which is a real pity.
Because the Vicus Caprarius – the city of water (in Italian: Città dell’acqua), which was discovered during renovation work on a cinema in 1999 and 2001, shows parts of a building complex from the imperial era. In addition to the walls and excavations of the living quarters, you can also see parts of the aqueduct Aqua Virgo, through which the water of the Trevi Fountain flows. The excavation site is very small. But the fact that there is a hidden site right around the corner from the most famous fountain in the world, one of the most visited squares in Rome, reveals the complexity and depth of the city in an unbeatable way.
