Just to agree with all the excellent ratings from other reviewers. But book your visit. We went in quiet October and were lucky they had laid on three additional English language tours. Tip for Roma Antiquities: learn from this venue when you finally have to protect the Forum or make that area easier to decipher.

It is certainly worth the time (1.5 hrs) if you have 3 days or more in Rome. If you have Roma Pass, the cost is free or 50% off, but you have to call to make the reservation; or you can purchase full price ticket and make reservation altogether online. We called in the early morning and got a reservation... More

Recently, I purchased two tickets for this wonderful place through Ticketone.it. To accommodate friends, a few weeks before the ticketed day I wanted to move the date ahead by one day and add two people. Their email response was as follows: "We are sorry but after the payment is made it will not be possible to cancel the purchase. Tickets... More

I echo the observations made by other reviewers. This was a skilfully managed exhibition imaginatively portraying the physical and intellectual process of an archaeological dig exposing the layers of the palimpsest that is Rome. I was in a group of about a dozen people for my tour (at 3.00pm on a Saturday). Accordingly there was ample space to see the... More

One of the most professionally organized tours with a full audio- visual presentation explaining the site (check the language for individual tours if you only speak English). Glass floors allow you to see the spot-lit points of interest. Small groups. A true glimpse of how people lived and an archaeological masterpiece. The best history lesson I have ever had!!!

This is a really interesting new take on presenting excavated ruins. The excavation is of one of the most lavish and large private residences of Ancient Rome ever uncovered, but the way it is presented is very, very impressive, educational and entertaining. You walk over glass most of the time and imaginative use of lighting and audio-visual brings everything to... More

Don't miss this when you're in Rome. Book your tour as they take tours by language and so have specific. The tour takes you below ground level to the excavations of the original building built on the site. You walk on a thick glass floor and the commentary in your language is set for each area. You are escorted from... More

This amazing underground museum has to be one of the most fascinating places I have visited in the last 20 years of travelling.its not really advertised in tourist books and guides yet, it's not been going very long.You have to book your slot in the language you want. There were 3 English sessions on the day went.Each session only has... More

In this beautiful palace the past is relived with the aid of every technique our world knows, from augmented reality to storytelling, so that one never gets bored longer than a few minutes.
