This is an actual archaeological site where lighting, projected image, and video is used to complete or accentuate ruins that are in remarkable condition. Most of the ruins are from the interior of a palazzo 2000 years old, however there are also interesting 16th century objects found during excavation. I would recommend doing this tour before checking out the forum.... More

Something 'new' in Rome for me and really worth going!!! It provides a glimpse of how a rich Roman family lived 2000 years ago. The idea that they were so far with what they could do/make/come up with and that all this knowledge just disappeared is unbelievable.

This is a very interesting attraction in Rome and it enables the visitor to get away from Rome's big crowds. The narration really gave us a good idea of how things were back then and the ruins are very well preserved. You should reserve a day or two in advance.

We visited the Domus with our two children (aged 6 and 11) who were first a bit unsettled by walking on a glass floor (so you can see the ruins underneath) but who were then quickly fascinated by the way the narrated tour explained what it all was. The light and sound effects really brought history back to life in... More

This is a mixture of a museum and a show. It consists of an excavated site with a home ( domus) from the middle ages and then on top of that house the remains of a renaissance home. The laser and projections help you to imagine what these homes would have looked like in their prime. It was very informative... More

Somewhat interesting tour with good historical information. The guide was hard to understand and not terribly engaged, the sound equipment felt sterile and had problems 1/2 way through the tour and all of the plexiglass took away from the experience. I understand how the area needs to be protected, but it felt very contrived. The 4 of us struggled with... More

From my point of view, the visit in Domus Romano is must. I am surprising, that till now this place isn't most popular. Order tickets online and came to see wonderful things. It is amazing!

Of course, when in Rome you must see the Colosseum and all the other sights that Rome is famous for. This place however is a real treat. Prepare to step back in time as you walk through these cleverly reconstructed ancient Roman villas and find out who lived there and all sorts of other history of the villas. I would... More

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.
