    Great hidden gem in Rome!
    A total hidden gem in Rome! The free audio guide and informative panels teach you a ton about the stadium and Roman history more broadly. You don’t need more than a couple hours maximum (if you go slowly) to experience all of it. I highly recommend a stop if you’re in the neighborhood, especially if you’ve done all the main sites already.
    Thanks 😊

    Underneath one of the loveliest piazzas in the world
    This was a sports arena (circus are the ones for chariot-racing), Domitian loved the Greek culture, built this stadium and held games every four years. The visit is split in two parts: the first, archeological area where the curve of the stadium can be seen and the second part the French culture school undergrounds... If looking from above Piazza Navona, the shape of the stadium is very clear and for sure many but many other Roman foundations are under those private houses.
    Thanks

    Surprisingly worthwhile visit that deepens understanding & appreciation of Piazza Navona
    This was a surprisingly good little audio guide tour of a section of the Roman stadium beneath the piazza Navona. Well worth a visit as it totally changes your perspective & understanding of the piazza itself. Audio guide took about 30mins, easy to follow. We also did the extra section which entailed being taken out and across the piazza to the other side and into some private buildings and down below where additional, quite extensive ruins have been uncovered and preserved. 3 more audio guide points there. Not essential but for an extra 4Eu & 15mins I think it’s worth it.
    Thanks

    100% worth a visit
    Really interesting walking through and learning about the history of the Piazza Nanova and Stadium of Domitian. While there may not be heaps to physically see compared to other ruins, the audio guide and infographics do a great job at painting a picture and filling in the blank spots. Well curated and organised.
    Thanks 😊

Perfect experience! You can see Stadio di Domiziano foundations under the Piazza Navona. The audioguide was helpful and easy to follow.

It was very interesting to see the underground and you feel like you transformed into those ages and attending to a race in ancient Rome

It was really impressive to see what lays underneath the city. The additional location under the French school of history was also amazing to see.

Only down side was a few bits of the audio guide did not match up to what we were seeing, like a missing model but it wouldn’t stop me recommending this
