Once again found on tripadvisor. We were pleasantly surprised at how well set out and informative this place was. A good introduction to Rome and the archaeology of it.

We are seasoned and matured travelers and were in Rome for a week, our 5th or 6th trip to Rome. We love history, art, etc. and this site was just fantastic. It is suitable for young or old, novice or experienced. Since many reviews already covered what it is, let me offer 3 practical items. 1. The location indicated in... More

This is an unexpected delight of a tour. As you walk through an ancient underground home, beneath one of Rome's current palazzos overhead narration fills in the history of the place, while special effects, etc bring it back to life in all of it's glory....not to be missed!

Great place, you learn about Roman life, and get to see an interesting excavation site through the glass floor. Book in advance, guided tours in small groups, also interesting for children. (do not go if you are afraid of darkness)

We have been to Rome 5 times now - first time here. It is an amazing experience - really recreates what the archaelogists have achieved and helps you to imagine how the wealthier Romans lived. the multi-media presentation was outstanding. The groups are small and it was wonderful to walk through an area taking you to the bottom of Trajan's... More

Through a high-tech light show, the remains of this aristocratic ancient Roman house are reconstructed right before your eyes, and often right under your feet. Using the archaeological remains of mosaic floors, frescoes and marble revetment, the house is restored to its former glory as you move through several rooms, including the family's private baths. The tour ends with a... More

Here you can visit a mix of an ancient Roman villa with renaissance interferences, all explained masterly with audio and vide installations accompanying you all the way through the underground of the Palazzo
