This was a neat experience but I would not rank it in the top 3 things to do in Rome (go to the colosseum and Vatican first!). The tour is about 1.5 hours and it goes through the ruins of an old palace using lights and computer generated images to show reconstruction. The best part for me was the 10-15... More

I traveled to Rome with my 10 year old son and 7 year old daughter and we all really enjoyed this experience. Beautiful explanations of the archaeological remains and a great place to get out of the summer heat.

Very well organised, enlightening virtual tour. Much better than a normal guide. It should be better advertised.

We visited here off the back of the great reviews on TripAdvisor. You must book in advance for this attraction and ensure you know how to get there before booking. The best way is to find it first and book at the entrance. The tour combines lighting effects and the Roman ruins to paint a really vivid image of how... More

There were several things we liked about this tour. Being able to walk above the ruins was a neat experience but seeing the projections of what it would have looked like intact and with it's original painted walls and decorations was a chance to step back in time and really get a sense of what living there was like. Having... More

This was my last stop on my 2 day trip to Rome. The glass floors, projections, History-like commentary and virtual reconstruction made the 'Domus' come alive and truly stimulates your imagination as to what life was like back then. For anyone who wants a new and engaging way to interact with the beautiful ruins of Rome, I highly recommend this... More

This tour was absolutely amazing. The staff and the guide were not the friendliest people in the world, but it hardly mattered. These ruins we saw were so well preserved, and the house was so large with so many different rooms, it was incredible. They use lights, sounds, animations, and voice overs to explain what you are seeing in thorough... More

We were a little surprised this is the #3 attraction for Rome. I think you shouldn't miss it if you're really into (Roman) archaeology and history -- and if you're not already totally exhausted from walking and standing on your feet. As it was, the best thing about it for us was getting out of the sun for a couple... More

This museum was very inovative in the way they presented the ruins and explained what was there and also around it. I wish others would do this, as sometimes it is not easy to imagine how the place would have looked back in the day! We also enjoyed the second part of the visit, with the Trajan Column explained, it... More
