Description Vicus Caprarius near the Trevi Fountain

The Vicus Caprarius excavation site is an underground area under the Trevi district. This is why the most famous fountain in the world, the Trevi Fountain, has its name. The archaeological area of Vicus Caprarius consists of a Roman building complex and a preserved section of the Aqua Virgo aqueduct. The aqueduct still serves its purpose today, supplying water to the city's most important monumental fountains, such as the Trevi Fountain. For this reason, the Vicus Caprarius excavation site is also known as the "City of Water".
Vicus Caprarius is only a stone's throw away from the famous Trevi Fountain and is located in the same building as the cinema "Cineteca Nazionale". The excavation site was discovered in 1999 during the restoration of the film theatre.
Visit the imposing building complex and a arranged museum, consisting of marble mosaics, statues and artistic marble decorations from the imperial period.
