Description

The yellow, brownish ochre-coloured buildings, Bernini’s fountain and the celebrated Spanish Steps rising up towards the Church of Trinità dei Monti, all helping to create a refined, eighteenth century atmosphere. The monumental stair way of 135 steps was built with French diplomat Étienne Gueffier’s bequeathed funds of 20,000 scuds, in 1723–1725, linking the Bourbon Spanish Embassy, and the Trinità dei Monti church that was under the patronage of the Bourbon kings of France, both located above — to the Holy See in Palazzo Monaldeschi located below. The stair way was designed by architects Francesco de Sanctis and Alessandro Specchi. In the Piazza di Spagna at the base is the Early Baroque fountain called Fontana della Barcaccia ("Fountain of the ugly Boat"), built in 1627-29 and often credited to Pietro Bernini, father of a more famous son, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, who is recently said to have collaborated on the decoration. According to a legend, Pope Urban VIII had the fountain installed after he had been impressed by a boat brought here by a flood of the Tiber river. From here you will walk to the Trevi Fountain, designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Pietro Bracci. Standing 26.3 metres (86 ft) high and 49.15 metres (161.3 ft) wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. The fountain at the junction of three roads marks the terminal point of the "modern" Acqua Vergine, the revived Aqua Virgo, one of the aqueducts that supplied water to ancient Rome. In 19 BC, supposedly with the help of a virgin, Roman technicians located a source of pure water some 13 km (8.1 mi) from the city. (This scene is presented on the present fountain's façade.) However, the eventual indirect route of the aqueduct made its length some 22 km (14 mi). This Aqua Virgo led the water into the Baths of Agrippa. It served Rome for more than 400 years. From here, you will walk to the Vicus Caprarius, an ancient alley where the entrance of the underground passage is located. You will now discover what lies beneath the magnificent fountain. Here you will admire a huge complex of ancient ruins hidden beneath the Trevi fountain, dating to the Imperial age. The area is situated under the famous Cinema Trevi. 8 metres underground, in a suggestive atmosphere, are visible different levels of an ancient district on the Caprarius Road (Vicus Caprari us). The archaeological site preserves the look of the activity in the center of Rome from I till V century a.D. In the enchanting ruins it’s possible to see water cistern, labyrinth, staircases, passages, Domus from IV century A.D. and many archeological find like amphora, coins, votive statues. In the Vicus Caprarius the same water of Trevi Fountain gushes out... The Vicus Caprarius is an exceptional testimony of one of the most important periods in the history of Rome.
