Very well-presented, with a detailed audio guide. The history behind the stadium ‘underneath’ Piazza Navona is mind-bending, with the ability of the Romans to build extraordinary structures very evident in the displays and archaeological finds.

Nice place and good to visit with kids. A lot of history and things you can leave about Rome from visiting here.

Visiting Rome, you definitely pass through Navona square (perhaps several times). But as a returning tourist, you start searching for new places to visit- in this case a well-known destination, but going underground. There you can make an idea about how big was the Stadio...More

The impressive Piazza Navona follows the shape of the Stadium of Domitian (86 A.D.) where Greek-based Athletic games were once on display - mainly running races, but also boxing matches, and, believe it or not, some kind of Latin Poetry competitions... To-day, in one corner...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
