Arco degli Acetari, Rome

Arco degli Acetari - Rome, Italy

Neighborhood: Centro Storico
Overview

If you are walking from Campo de' Fiori along Via del Pellegrino, turn at a shabby, crumbling arch on your left. You'll suddenly find a tiny, quiet courtyard considered one of the few remains of medieval Rome: the Arco degli Acetari. Its name hails from the sellers of chalybeate acqua Acetosa (water from the fountain of the same name located in the Parioli neighborhood) or, perhaps, after the name of the Acetari, sellers of water mixed with sugar and vinegar. - Maria Frullini
