We brought our 11 year old girls and they found the ruins fascinating. This is a must-see attraction in Rome.

Wow. This this the best underground roman museum (and there are a few). It really gave an amazing understanding of the ruins we were standing it. The use if light and reproductions were brilliant. If you find yourself wandering around these ruins think "what the heck is that? Another small wall?" this is the place for you. If you have... More

We do not agree with all the high recommendations for Le Domus Romane di Palazzo Valentini. After making reservations by phone, we were told to arrive early. We did and were able to purchase our tickets right away, but there was no good place to wait for the tour to begin. They instructed us to go outside in the rain.... More

I booked this tour for myself and my family after reading about it on TripAdvisor and I must say it was much better than I expected. The tour was limited to about 15 people so it was quite intimate. With the use special lighting, lasers and projections the true feeling of the ruins are brought to life in a way... More

I saw this on Trip Advisor, and thought it sounded interesting. Fortunately, I wasn't let down. It's very educational. They basically preserved an archeological site (a Villa belonging to an obviously wealthy owner. A senator perhaps.) under glass floors so you get a unique perspective of life in ancient Rome. Some of the walls and floors are in remarkable shape.... More

Didnt know about this until found it on tripadvisor. Really brought ancient Rome to life through creative combination of actual archaeological remains and sophisticated lighting and sound effects. Really two attractions in one - the villa itself and then a detailed explanation of trajan's column. Perhaps a little long at 90 mins, even then at times we were being rushed... More

This is a unique attraction in Rome. It literally illuminates the lives and society of ancient Rome. Walking on a glass floor is eerie and scary at first but then you are so engrossed in the narration that you almost forget. Its not for those with mobility issues since you descend two floors of steps. Also its very important to... More

We ordered our 1:30 pm guided tour tickets at 11:00 am for 28 euro (1 adult + 2 teens) at the reception desk. Maximum 15 visitors can join the 90 minutes tour. The first half of the tour consists of walking over different areas in- and outside an Ancient Rome Family House. The methods used to let you observe and... More

This tour takes you underground to stand over the very house that once stood there in Ancient Rome. You walk on glass floors and the lighting, computer aided visuals and lasers bring to life what was once there. There is even sound to give you a real feel of what it was like to be in this grand house, with... More

The hotel concierge told us about this place or we would have probably not gone or allocated time from other major spots. We would have missed so much. I understand this is one of the latest excavations so the tour is fresh and new. The forum did not give us the idea of life in Ancient Rome as this place... More
