An excellent alternative for a funny Sunday with kids: it does not give only historical and multisensorial experience of Rome, but it is a funny journey across Rome history (with many surprises during the show!) .... maybe the Rome's histroy is too much "fincionalized" but it helps to let kids keep in mind a bit of the boring Rome's history.......

We read about this in The Lonely Planet and it seemed like a good idea…but we were extremely disappointed. First of all, it doesn't really give you much information about the history of Rome. We were hoping our kids would come out of it with a greater appreciation for and understanding of the things they were likely to see walking... More

A nice attraction to visit with kids in Rome. Quite interesting and nice souvenirs to buy there. You can also use the advantage of purchasing a combined ticket to the time elevetor and the colosseum - this will save you the line later....

Waste of time...and over priced. A simulator that gives you information you probably already know about Rome. If anything, it is good for kids...but nothing special.

In terms of content and style its aimed at children and even allowing for that a little over priced. I guess if you knew absolutely nothing about Rome at all you might be a little more impressed.

The show is not too long and very thrilling. It gives you a quick idea of what Rome use to be like, from Romulus & Remus to present day. There is also another show on "evolution", which we greatly enjoyed. Both shows together lasted one hour and after getting a kick out of the 5D we were able to continue... More

We thought this was a lot of fun and learnt lots from it. It tells you how rome was built and the historic figures. I would recommend, the staff were friendly.

We went here to get more of a feel of what ancient Rome looked like. It cost 12 euros each and lasted probably 15 minutes at the most. We left disappointed that we hadn't seen or learned anything we didn't know going in. The CGI was unimpressive.

Interesting experience - historical movie, panoramic views and a bit of effects. Film is just 30 minutes, not 45 as announced. I would like to see more information about each century and prolong movie to 50-60 minutes.
