We visited this exhibit after reading Tripadvisor reviews, and were really pleased we did. The exhibit is an interactive experience, showcasing the remains of a Roman house. It is slightly Disney-esque, but this is easy to forgive as the beauty of the house comes to life. Rome is a wonderful city, but especially after the Roman Forum, it can be... More

this is a very interesting way to visualize how a rich families mansion looked in Roman times. Using modern technology to complete the ruins a unique perspective is given. Additionally at the end of the tour their is a documentary and a view of Trajan's Column. Not suited for very young kids. Overall, Highly recommended, but shouldn't make the top... More

I loved it and my 8 year old loved it - what else is there to say - we will go back. It was extremely interesting and educational in that they have skillfully digitally recreated the house and you walk on glass over the ruins- a definite highlight of our trip !!! Be warned though you need to book several... More

Decided to visit on basis of other Trip Advisor reviews - and weren't disappointed! Even the two teenage girls in our family group stayed interested throughout the tour. You could actually imagine life in Roman times as the recorded commentary perfectly complimented the lighting 'projections' on the floor & walls, and because you were only in a small group you...

Very well presented with latest 3D recreation technology for the ruins. The place was too dark for little children (maybe not recommended), my kids found it interesting (age 14,12 and 10). Learned about Trajan's Column in detail which was a bit long. Nevertheless, we recommend to go as it was interesting and educational and best of all it's all in... More

I always wonder what the ruins looked like in all of their splendor and full glory...at Domus Romane you don't have to wonder. Just make sure you book your tour in English!

This presentation was one of the highlights of our trip. Yes, it is a little Disney-esque but, especially with teens, it truly brings Roman ruins to life. I have no idea why this place appears in no guidebooks at all, but it really should be considered a must see in Rome.

Having studied Roman Archeaology at University, I have always been disappointed by how many sites leave TOO much to the imagination, preventing people from fully appreciating an archaeological site. This is particularly true about many sites in Rome and Italy (e.g. sadly, even the forum.) Palazzo Valentine is an AMAZING exception. It is a perfect example of how EVERY archaeological... More

When we arrived, my family were sure that I had got the wrong place! I heard mutterings about 'it's just Government offices' and 'what are all the police here for?' It was the right place but unfortunately we hadn't booked in advance so had to tag along onto a French tour. As all the narration is digital along with the... More

You do need to book ahead and make sure you get the correct language group. The reception is not especially helpful or friendly. The tour guide takes you from room to room and then pushes a button for the presentation to begin. The guide had probably done it hundreds of times and it showed on his face! Our group of... More
