Where is all the water of the Trevi Fountain in Rome coming from?

This is a mind blowing tour of the underground secret layers of Rome!


We are few steps away to the Trevi fountain and here we will discover where all of the water of the most famous fountain of Rome comes from!


In fact, this is where the water tank of the Aqua Virgo is, one of the most ancient Roman aqueducts. This aqueduct was built by Agrippa (right-hand man of Augustus) in 19BC to provide water to his Thermal Baths.


The thermal baths of Agrippa were the first public thermal baths of Rome!


It is amazing to imagine that the aqueduct feeding the first thermal baths of Rome, today provide water to some of the most beautiful fountains of the city: Trevi fountain, Barcaccia fountain in Spanish Steps, the Fountain of the Four Rivers in Piazza Navona and more..


Rome once again proves us that it is not just a beautiful city on the surface, but also underground! 🙂
