The visit to the basement of the Trevi Fountain is a less known but at the same time incredibly suggestive tourist route. It is well known that everywhere in Rome you can find ancient domus, aqueducts and archaeological finds. The site under the Trevi Fountain is a prominent example of this and deserves to be visited.
The underground archaeological site that lies beneath the Trevi Fountain has been named Vicus Caprarius, or even “the city of water”. It was discovered between 1999 and 2001 during the renovation of the former Trevi Cinema.
Thanks to the excavations carried out together with the superintendence of the archaeological heritage of Rome, a building complex of the imperial age was brought to light , including canals that carried water from the Virgin Aqueduct to the luxurious domus of the area, in which water still flows. clear from the Lucullano countryside at a depth of 9 meters from road level.
To frame the archaeological site there is the antiquarium, that is the exhibition of all the finds that have been found over the years during the excavations. It is an interesting number of coins dating back to between the 4th and 5th centuries AD, as well as everyday objects.
