It was easy to find, there are a few signs pointing the way. Refreshing and cool, a nice break from the heat. Two aspects of Ancient Rome’s history, a building with stairs still intact and a water storage area....plus many artifacts uncovered there. If you...More

We stumbled across this little gem of an attraction. It is small, but the tour guides are very proud of it. It is an archaeological site.

Saw this exhibition on here after seeing it featured on tv! So glad we did. Look up previous review for directions and go along . You won’t be disappointed.

Lovely wee place which we think is showing the underground plumbing etc, of the city but I'm afraid that is guess work cos we couldn't find out what it was all about in English. More English language plaques would be appreciated. We basically guessed our...More

Its a cool little place, the 3 euros entry is fair, but keep in mind that unless you stop to read every little thing, you will be done in less then 15 min. Its basically one "big" room, with very little to see.

Stopped by for a short visit. Interesting to learn a bit more about the history of the city. And if it's a hot day, it's a good place to cool off for a short while.

This is just around the corner from Trevi Fountain and only 3 euros entry. It's quite hidden and we walked around in circles trying to find it. It's a little museum but pretty cool to see the old water ways and the archaeological findings. We...More

This was a nice quiet site just around from the Trevi fountain. My husband and I were the only ones looking at the site. There is an entrance fee of 3 Euros, but it was worth it. Very cool site to see old residences.

Small but very interesting site with access to original remains of an aqueduct and residences. The staff were wonderful and the exhibition of the remains well planned around sensible consolidation and preservation efforts.

There were a few hours left in the day so I decided to explore one of the sites near the hotel – Vicus Caprarius. It was near the Trevi Fountain and finding it was incredibly difficult despite having an address, a map and google maps....More

A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is
all about action. From early morning through the wee
hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a
never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or
take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming
gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of
hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle
are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you
