Recommended by a friendly Italian tour guide - who showed us round the Colosseum and The Vatican - this fascinating insight into Rome's history and culture is quite tricky to find, thus missed by too many visitors. We went in a party of four adults and four children 8-16 and all were enthralled by the guide's narration, aided by stunning... More

My husband and I went here expecting to be walked around some old ruins. The narration and computer regeneration effects they have are fantastic. The tour took close to 2 hours, and included a 30-minute video about Trajan's Column. I wouldn't recommend this for young kids, because it is dark and there aren't any places to sit, bathrooms, or quiet... More

The visit itself is very informative and you can see the remains of ancient Roman houses. The projections really help you understand how it was back then. The only problem is the size of the group. The rooms are small and it’s a bit awkward trying to move around. There are times when you won’t be able to see everything... More

We were pleasantly surprised how interesting this tour of an underground archeological site was. Combination of video, audio and light show did a good job of portraying 4th century Roman life.

It was an interactive, attractive and really enjoyable tour in Rome, where we could see hear, and imagine lives of ancient Romans. Historic details were presented with great care and weren't boring at all.

Two years ago, a hotel staff recommended this a a great place to see mosaics found underground Rome. We weren't able to go then, but on this return trip made it there. We tried to go on three separate occsissions before we were able to get in. I know you can make a reservation and pay in advance, but I... More

When you've seen all the ruins of the forum and colosseum, you must do this tour. It brings it all alive. An hour and a half of fascinating insight into Roman life with multimedia effects ending with a very special grand finale. So glad we fitted this into our itinerary. It is up there on our favourite bits of Rome... More

For me this was the second attraction in Rome I liked. Impressive. Me and my partner really enjoyed. But you should book in advance, we stayed one hour to get in.

If you are looking for ancient history this is the place for you! Instead of just yet another pile of rocks, this is a "multimedia museum". Prebook to a session in your language. You are led around the ruins of the house, pointing out important aspects and projections give an idea if what it was like in its splendor. It... More

This visit takes you down through layers of Roman history to the remains of a large house from ancient Rome, parts of which are surprising well preserved. Where they are not, a light show using computer graphics is used to re-imagine them. This is all very well done and the visit is a good introduction to other Roman remains. One... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
