Very interesting and well put together. Great mix of actual ruins of a Roman home and computer animated layovers to fill in gaps. Booked online with no issues. And yes, it was difficult to find due to a lack of signage on the exterior of the building. (I think they have signs now) Wandering somewhat aimlessly in the area for... More

I was completely blown away by the uniqueness of this experience. It is difficult to convey to you what this was like but it held me in awe from the beginning to the end 90 minutes later. This exhibit was built right over an excavation of a wealthy prominent Roman's home. There are steel girders positioned over the excavation that... More

I found this attraction on Tripadvisor and now I found out why it rated so highly! This is a must if you visit Rome, besides the more known monuments such as the colosseum and the forum Romanum you should visit this place. it gives you a different insight on Rome and it's history. Perfect for couples with children.

This is an excavation of a large Roman house underneath a government type building. The floors of the modern building are plexiglass and walking on them is really disorienting, but ultimately a great deal of fun (kids would love it). The tour is escorted and has videos running to show how areas would have looked and a brief film in... More

We visited this site in early April. The archeology mix with technology demonstrates the wonders of ancient Roman life with a modern twist that allowed us to clearly see what life was like for this well off Roman family. One 2 minute technology presentation (a short part of the overall tour) did not work when we were there. The one... More

Most comprehensive tour at an archeological sight in Rome and it utilizes audiovisual technology to convey the original architecture and design of the buildings/rooms.

More than 3 days in advance and you will be left with the scraps of the limited 15 group size? Massive surprise at the end of the tour

What a find! A 90 min guide round ruins which are brought to life by fantastic multi media. Really is worth doing, as the technology is so well done. It transforms the ruins into how they would have looked as a house, the lighting and video are excellent. Different from anything else I have seen. The place is hard to... More

If you at all interested in the history of Rome and what life was like in ancient Rome, I recommend you go. This is so much more than a museum. They walk you through the ruins of an ancient Roman house and show you virtually what it would have looked like, when certain pieces are missing. They explain so much... More

If you wish to see Rome in its old regal and charm, then this is the place to head. This exhibition utilizes the remains of an old roman building so it gives a credibility and authenticity to the whole tour and added to that they use modern technology and 3D narration skill to bring this entire building to life and...

Staying in Trevi

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.
