The underground location is dated at the time of Augustus and it’s dedicated to the nymphs, to plants, and to all the magical elements that may be found in the mythology of the woods.In ancient times the nymphaeums included facilities equipped with tanks and water plants by which the nobles spent moments of leisure or feasting.The Nymphaeum degli Annibaldi, originally made up of a semi-elliptical shape, almost certainly belonged to a wealthy home.

The term “City of Water” currently used to define the archaeological site of the Vicus Caprarius, is used because of the presence of the element that characterizes the site: first the water that flows from the Trevi Fountain, the monumental baroque fountain powered by ‘aqueduct virgin in whose immediate vicinity lies the archaeological site. Excavations have revealed two buildings, contiguous and contemporary, lined up on the west side, along the Vicus Caprarius or Capralicus. The north building has been identified as a housing complex, while the south building, which is also well preserved in elevation, has been destined for public use.*PLEASE TAKE NOTE that all our tours are on a private basis for your party, not in sharing tour with other people*
The Auditorium of Mecenate is located in Rome city centerThe building, now protected by a roofing, originally had a vaulted roof, and consists of a large hall which is 24 meters long and 13 wide, with a semicircular apse on the bottom which has a staircase with seven concentric steps.However, the peculiarity of the building is the pictorial decoration, realized at the beginning of the first century AD, which is well maintained both in the niches and on the top, where there is an ornament on a black background with Dionysian scenes and miniature gardens. The steps that distinguish the back wall are too small to let us think it was a theater (idea that, at the time of the discovery, gave name to the place), in fact it is nothing but than a monumental fountain.*PLEASE TAKE NOTE that all our tours are on a private basis for your party, not in sharing tour with other people*
