Went to "Domus Romane" on our last day, and it put it all into perspective! Well worth the price, and recommend making a reservation to get the ENGLISH tour.

This attraction was high on out must-do list during a weekend in Rome. Arrived at the Domus on Saturday morning to be told all English language tours were full but could book by phone or internet for the next day.

A very good virtual and vocal reconstruction of the villa of a senator; the area dating to 5th AD. had precious mosaics, marbles, statues, garden, niches, baths. You'll understand how the master of that house used to live even through the remains of dinner and lunch! Booking is recommended

Had read the reviews on TA and made it a priority to visit. It far exceeded my expectations and for both my husband and myself, this was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Walking on a glass floor over the excavations was a little disconcerting at first, but when we got used to it, this was an amazing experience.... More

Before arriving in Rome I had no idea of this brilliant attraction. It was recommended to us by the owner of our B&B however I would say its a MUST for anyone visiting Rome. Its also completely under cover so good to do on a rainy day! You basically spend the entire time walking on a glass floor suspended over... More
