Leisure or feasting in ancient Rome

Discovered in 1895 during the developmental work on the homonymous street, the Nymphaeum is reachable by a small door in the wall of via degli Annibaldi, behind the Colosseum. The underground location is dated at the time of Augustus and it’s dedicated to the nymphs, to plants, and to all the magical elements that may be found in the mythology of the woods.

In ancient times the nymphaeums included facilities equipped with tanks and water plants by which the nobles spent moments of leisure or feasting.

The Nymphaeum degli Annibaldi, originally made up of a semi-elliptical shape, almost certainly belonged to a wealthy home. It’s decorated by niches and enhanced with ornaments made of mother of pearl, shells, pumice and enamel that make this place unique.

After the visit, you can do a walk in the Villa Borghese gardens where you can find the Borghese Gallery, a magnificent museum with works by Raphael, Bernini, Caravaggio and more. Read more about it on our “Borghese Gallery Tour” in the “Private Tours” section.
