Very few people haven’t heard of the Trevi Fountain. Many know little about the underground route that stretches beneath the Trevi district, which is part of the underground archaeological area of Vicus Caprarius – the City of Water.

Starting with a visit to this suggestive underground setting, we propose 4 different ways to discover what lies beneath our feet.

Guided by our archaeologists, students will be able to touch Rome’s millennial stratification and observe the testimonies of the great events that characterised the city’s history. 

Guided tour ``Vicus Caprarius - the City of Water, underground archaeological area``

Primary and Secondary Schools

The guided tour of the underground archaeological area will provide a detailed understanding of the architecture and functionality of the structures brought to light during the excavations, and will permit the discovery of the traces of the creation of the Virgin Aqueduct, of the Nova Urbs wanted by Nero after the fire in 64 AD and the siege of the Goths.

It is also possible to enrich the visit with a historical-artistic study of the Trevi Fountain.

ArcheoQuiz, discovering the ``City of the Water``

Primary schools

What distinguishes a true archaeologist from a “treasure hunter”? How much information is enclosed in a coin? In an amphora, a fragment of a statue, or what, at first glance, looks like a simple “fragment“?

Children will be asked to respond to a real “quiz” on the structures visited, and stimulated to search for clues and answers to obtain the Expert Archaeologist Diploma”!

Guided tour ``Underground the VII Regio``

Secondary schools

Although it is located very close to the urban axis of the ancient Via Flaminia, the archaeological area of ​​Vicus Caprarius, the underground streets of Lata and Titulus Lucinae, are the three archaeological scenarios (each completely different from each other) that characterise the portion of city centre between the Trevi Fountain and Via del Corso. The visit will unwind within this area, amongst art, architecture and, above all, underground archaeology. 

Guided tour ``The Trevi District...Above & Below``

Primary and Secondary Schools

The Trevi District is known by tourists around the world almost exclusively for the monumental fountain. But even the Romans often ignore how many curiosities, legends and works of art lie hidden in its alleys. And how many archaeological remains can be found, solitary and almost unknown, right under the same streets that are walked upon every day by thousands of tourists. 

Families, schools, groups or individual visitors: everyone has their own route to discover the hidden treasures of the City of Water, the archaeological area underground the Trevi Fountain.
