Vicus Caprarius – the City of Water

Excavated between 1999–2001, this ancient apartment complex and aqueduct dating back to the 1st century AD is located beneath the Trevi district. It features pools filled by the Aqua Virgo, one of the 11 aqueducts of ancient Rome, which also fills the Trevi Fountain. Vicus Caprarius includes the vesitiges of homes of ancient upper-class Romans, alongside artifacts like terracotta figurines, African pottery, mosaic tiles, and over 800 coins.
