Full description
The tour will guide you to discover an evocative archeological area just behind the Trevi Fountain, namely Vicus Caprarius, also known as the City of Water. See the structures of an imperial era "domus", the "castellum aquae" of the Vergine Aqueduct and many fascinating finds, including the famous face of Alessandro helios. On a journey back in time, it will be possible to touch the millennial stratification of Rome and observe the archaeological evidence of the great events that characterized the history of the city. After the visit to the City of Water, you will return to the Trevi Fountain, the great baroque masterpiece, to continue your journey to Triton Fountain, carved by the notable Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Going on toward Piazza Mignanelli you will notice one of the characteristic public fountains of Rome known as Nasone. Then you will reach the Spanish Step and the Barcaccia Fountain. Strolling on Via del Babuino you will see one of the six statues of Rome representing Silenus, nicknamed by Romans “babbuino” which means baboon. At the end, you will reach Via Margutta where you can admire the Fountain of Arts, created by Pietro Pietro Lombardi which consists of an allegorical set of easels, palettes, masks, brushes and sculptor's compasses.
