More details about the guided tour
We will start from the Aqueducts Park, where you can follow me on a short 3-hour tour in this vast park that extends for 240 hectares and contains within it 6 of the 11 ancient Roman aqueducts. We will discover how the engineers of ancient Rome managed to meet the daily needs of the million inhabitants who populated the city. We will analyze construction techniques and the flow rates of these aqueducts, which could even reach more than 2,000 liters per second, but also how this water was cleaned of impurities and above all how water distribution took place in the ancient Rome.
If you want to know more, you can extend your tour to 6 hours and then we will discover how some of the routes of these ancient aqueducts were then reused in the Renaissance to serve the large public fountains and supply the people of Rome with public water to the city center. .
We will talk about the great public fountains of Rome such as the Trevi Fountain, the Triton Fountain, the Barcaccia Fountain, the Fountain of the Four Rivers, the Fountain of Moses and many other monumental fountains of Rome, each one hiding symbolic and political function among its elements.
