A fascinating experience where we travelled back in time, seeing ruins come to life. Clearly a lot of thought has been put into this. Strongly recommended for children aged 9 and above as they can clearly see the connection between excavated ruins and what life was really like.

An absolute highlight. I say no more, the experience will speak for itself. Numbers on each tour are necessarily limited - about 12 on the English 2.30pm - so do book in advance. Visited as a couple but this would really appeal to families with historically inquisitive children.

This was a really interesting and engaging museum experience, well worth the 12 Euro entrance fee. We pre-booked the English tour online. Underneath a public building (very close to the Victor Emmanuel Monument) are the archaeological remains of a wealthy Roman house. The excavation is viewed through a glass floor and it is bought to life through the use of... More

This places takes you back to ancient Rome. The guide takes you back to the beginning of Rome, how everything was built and how modern Rome is built under another city. I am writing this review now because I just finished Reading an academic article about Ancient Rome and it was due to this visit, that I was able to... More

This museum is one of the most interesting Roman museums in the entire city, yet it is barely known to Americans. You will need a reservation (tickets can be purchased on line), but you will see a fourth century AD Roman villa built under a Renaissance palazzo (Palazzo Valentini is now the office of the region of Lazio right in...

I agree entirely with Ronil, this place is a great place to visit and not well known. It is 12€ entry and the tour takes about 1.5 hrs. In March I was able to rock up at 12.30 and book into the 2pm English tour. I found this much better in many respects than the Museo dei Fori Imperiali which... More

This is hard to describe any better than those who have already posted here. It felt like a real privilege to be given access to this site of history. Having visited the Forum the previous day, this was a great complimentary trip which gave an in site into the life of the ancient Romans and into the work of our... More

I took the English tour, but there are tours in several languages. The whole tour is done over a glass floor through which you can see the old remains of an ancient home, which was destroyed (probably during an earthquake) and built over throughout the years. They use lights and lasers to recreate the place the way it was and... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
