- Vicus Caprarius
We begin with a visit to the Vicus Caprarius, a newly opened space showing Roman apartments under a modern cinema near the Trevi Fountain, or pop into Sant'Ignazio Church, with its stunning ceiling frescos by Pozzo. We’ll proceed to the subterranean levels of San Lorenzo in Lucina, a medieval church with remnants of its basilica buried in the crypt underneath. We will also see the remains of an ancient apartment complex, and talk about domestic Roman buildings. From here our Underground Rome tour varies.
We may also stop into the chic Rinascente department store, which houses the Aqua Virgo aqueduct, inaugurated by Augustus in 19 BC, in its basement. Or we may round out the itinerary with one of the myriad underground sites controlled by the Comune di Roma or other governmental ministries.

Please also note: Although we will pre-book all appointments to the sites, participants are responsible for buying their tickets at the time of the walk to any sites that require it.
