NERO'S AQUEDUCT
Image 1: View of the remains of the Nero Aqueduct from the St John Lateran Square
The Nero's Aqueduct, subsequently named Celimontano's Aqueduct, slightly to the south of the Porta Maggiore, was built by Emperor Nero, as a branch of the Aqua Claudia Aqueduct, in order to bring water to the Domus Aurea, the artificial lake and the nymphaeum of the temple of the divine Claudius; it followed the underground path of the Aqua Appia Aqueduct towards the Colosseum valley by crossing as an arched aqueduct the Caelian Hill.
The aqueduct was extended to the Palatine Hill by Emperor Domitian in order to bring water to the Imperial Palaces, and it was restored by Septimius Severus; nowadays some of the ruins are still visible in the green area along the ancient path between the Colosseum and the Porta Maggiore; other remains can be found within the gardens of the Villa Wolkonsky.
