Tour Description

Your tour will begin in Piazza del Popolo, where you will meet your local professional guide and fellow travelers. Home to the Fontana dei Leoni, Piazza del Popolo is the emblem of an urbanisation in three dimension, linking the heights of the Pincian hill, and creating a lovely carriageway. 

Follow your guide as your group goes into a typical narrow roman street, Via del Babuino. Connecting Piazza del Popolo to Piazza di Spagna, the street is famous for its boutiques and high end shops. Listen to your guide's stories about the origins of the street and the particular fountain you'll meet halfway. 

Our next stop is Piazza di Spagna. Enjoy the view of the Spanish steps, and the beauty of Bernini's Barcaccia fountain. Built in the shape of  a wrecked ship, the fountain is the solution to a problem of water pressure and gravity of the area of Campo Marzio. 

From here, your guide will lead you towards the Trevi Fountain, passing by the ruins of the Aqueduct of the Acqua Vergine, dating back to the 1st Century BC. 

As your guide delights you with anecdotes and stories, you'll continue towards the Trevi Fountain. Known by all for its unique beauty and for being the main set for Fellini's movie La Dolce Vita, the Trevi Fountain is one of the most popular attractions in Rome. However, the lesser known underground city of water, is truly something spectacular. Once you've tossed a coin in the fountain, your guide will lead  you towards the Vicus Caprarius, known also as the City of Water. This underground imperial structure was brought to light only a few decades ago, and was used during the Imperial times as a passageway for the Aqueduct Vergine, which, like the subway, was all underground. Discover the beauty of this underground hidden gem, and get a better understanding of the mastermind behind Roman hydric urbanisation. Book now and live a unique experience!
