What to expect
Meet your guide at a centrally located meeting point and set out to begin your explorations of underground Rome. Make a beeline for Piazza Navona, where you’ll uncover the little-known ruins that lie beneath the bustling streets of the busy square. Venture underground to view the impressive ruins of the Stadium of Domitian and learn how it was built by Emperor Titus Flavius around 80AD. Let your guide bring the ruins back to life as you hear about the athletic contests that once took place in the stadium and imagine what life was like in ancient Rome. Back at street level, stroll over to the Pantheon and pose for photos before the mighty Temple of all the Gods. See Hadrian's Temple and trace the path of the ancient Roman streets that run beneath the now-iconic landmark. Pause to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain – said to ensure that you will one day return to Rome – on the way to explore the Vicus Caprarius. Nearby, marvel over a Roman insula, surrounded by the walls of today’s Via di S.Vincenzo and Via del Lavatore. Learn how the area was a swamp in ancient times, before playing a part in the construction of the Virgo aqueduct, which still supplies the water to many of Rome’s fountains, including the Trevi Fountain. With your imagination stoked and your mind spinning with tales of ancient Rome, bid your guide farewell and end your tour in the Piazza de Trevi.

This tour is more for history buffs than the traditional Rome tours. The guide goes very in depth and was an archaeologist by training. It really helped tie together all the places I had already seen and understand how they fit into the big picture of Rome's history.

Very good tour
This was an exceptionally good tour given by Serena who really knew her stuff.

During the tour we learnt a lot about some of the hidden aspects of Rome particulaly during the reign of the Flavian dynasty.

I would recommend this tour if you want to delve a bit deeper (literally) into Rome's history.

Our guide, Serena, did an excellent job of bring the past to life in this enjoyable tour. We saw ruins beneath Rome and how it ties in with what is above us on the surface. We have been to Rome several times but never saw it from this perspective. We highly recommend this tour.

Great trip with a great guide.
My wife and I did the underground tour with Flavio, highly recommend! It may have been due to the late season but it was just us three, so it was a very private tour. Flavio was very knowledgeable about the area and the history involved. We learned a lot about the context of several important spots in Rome and saw some amazing ruins beneath the streets. Flavio is great at bringing humor to the tour as well! Very interesting, very fun, well worth the price. We would do another tour with this company and I hope would have Flavio as our guide again.

Dear Mrs Lynn, Thank you for thanking time to leave a review depsite is not good one. As i explained, the tour had to be cancelled because the powercut in one of the major underground we supposed to visit on that day and this, did not depended from us. Your tour was on the 16th August (friday) and as i promise you would get a refund. Just for future reference, the payment you made was done to Viator/tripadvisor and not to Mea Tours. So you paid for the tour via paypal not to us. We are the local company who supposed to run the tour but, due to the inconveniences caused the power cut, the tour could not had be carried out. Your refund is on the way. Kind Regards Antonio

Jun 2019 • Couples
This was a great opportunity to see Rome from another perspective. It was also a great way to avoid the heat. Our guide was able to share with us her knowledge of the history of Rome and the original aqua-ducts, and it was really interesting to see how parts of Rome originated before being built upon. I would recommend this tour!
