Have you ever heard of Vicus Caprarius? It is one of the best-preserved underground Roman aqueducts in Rome.
Join our walking tour and together with an expert guide, you will learn and get to know the most famous fountains of the Italian capital and all the history behind each of them.
The first stop of our tour is Piazza Venezia, one of the most popular squares in Rome with the huge white monument “Altare della Patria”. We will stop here to admire the fountains of the Tyrrhenian and the Adriatic, two perfectly symmetrical fountains representing the two great seas that embrace Italy: the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Adriatic Sea, of course. 
Continuing with our tour, we will find the Turtle Fountain. This fountain was built between 1581 and 1588 on a project by Giacomo della Porta. The peculiarity of this fountain is the presence of four turtles in bronze, playing with some dolphins, which are placed on the shell-shaped tanks.Following our path, we will arrive in Piazza Navona, one of the most beautiful squares in Rome. The square is, above all, famous for the presence of three fountains of which the most important is the Fountain of the Four Rivers designed by Bernini.
The next stop will be the very famous Trevi fountain, perhaps the most famous fountain in the world. Under the Trevi Fountain, we will visit the famous underground aqueduct Vicus Caprarius, discovered in 1999 in the basement of a cinema. This is a really unique place that should definitely be on your Rome bucket list!
