We were a bit skeptical about this tour, but decided to book anyway. We're glad we did! The tour provided an unusual, very interesting perspective on the ruins that lie beneath the streets of Rome. There is a see-through floor over the ruins and as the narrator talks, the areas that he is talking about are lit up. At the... More

We visited this attraction based on TA reviews. I prebooked my English tour for 1:30 before I left the UK to ensure our entry. My family ( 2adults & 2 kids age 7 and 9) really enjoyed it. Having spent the week trying to imagine what the ruins we were seeing might have looked once like, it was great seeing... More

See this exhibit in Rome. The multi media prsesentation is amazing. It is offered in different languages too. Honestly, the web site does not do it justice. The history lying beneath Rome is as incredible as what is at street level. Book your visit time .. You won't be disappointed!

Our travel agent told us about the Domus Romane, which was not open the last time we were in Rome, and it was a good tip. It was especially interesting to learn about the process of discovering and uncovering these archeological treasures which remain buried under the streets of Rome.

This is a must see in Rome! Completely astonishing! especially if you are into archeology. Make sure to book in advance since the groups are limited on 15 people

Online, I bought two tickets for 8/1 2:00 pm presentation of Domus Romane. We arrived early at 12:00 to pick up our tickets, and were surprised when we were told we missed our 9:30 slot. I am confident that I booked the 2:00 slot since English tours were 1:30, 2:00 and 2:30. I had tried the 2:30 first and that... More

Once you get over walking on the glass floor, it is a stunning site. Don't miss this one, well worth the entrance price.

Before I left on my Rome vacation I checked on the website for English tour times: there are only 3 a day (in the middle of the day, when all good Italians are having their long lunch)... and many of them were already booked. However, when I showed up, the people at the front desk told me that lots of... More

This multi-media tour is very unique, the group is led from room to room, as you are standing on glass floors above the original historic floors below which are illuminated with projected images and lights. You definitely need to book in advance.

innovative lighting by laser and some great remains uncovered gives a real sense of the scale and beauty of a roman villa. lots of information from the guide but no freedom wander at all and no photo's

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.
