See a first century Roman house as it must gsve been - in splendour! Walking through the excavated ruins of a huge house of a clearly very rich family, the tour incorporates very clever audio-visual effects to bring the home and lifestyle almost to life. Booking is required as groups are kept small. Highly recommended!

It is always hard to visualize what ruins looked like no matter how well preserved but the tour and technology really made the ruins come alive for us. The description of Trajan's column and then seeing it in real life was also a great touch.

The tour brought this ancient Roman domus back to life - the use of technology to enhance the experience was genius. We could almost feel the presence of our ancient Roman ancestors. We enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about Trajan's Column and to see it up-close too. Highly recommend this experience.

We learned a lot from this. You see a lot of ruins in Rome and this at first seemed like it could be more of the same but they present it in a really unique way and i am glad we did it. Towards the end it really changed gears to talk about Trajan and we got a little confused,... More

Totally recommend seeing this - tickets can be purchased on the day or online in advance. We had to wait 2hrs for our slot but it was well worth it. The museum uses projections and lighting in combination with the ruins to recreate a Roman Villa as well as other ruins. The way in which this is done really brings... More

Simply amazing! Any history interested people can not miss this!! Big wow! We had just been talking about, after we had been to forum Romano, how nice it would be to get a better feeling of how the Roman Empire looked, instead of imagining by looking at stones as rubble. Here you really get a feeling of how wealthy Romans... More

This subterranean exhibit is a partial physical reconstruction and graphic projection enhanced gem. The home of an unknown patrician, this palace was destroyed in an earthquake and ensuing fire, burying timelessness moments from the ancient Roman past that one could only image - until now.

Impressive, we were glad we booked this tour and enjoyed it. It was nice to see not just the ruins but to really be able to imagine how this place looked like hundreds of years ago.

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.
