We have been on this tour on two separate trips to Rome and enjoyed both visits. Second time with our 14 year old boys. Your walk on a glass floor above the remains of what was an ancient villa overlooking Trajan's column. Augmented reality shows you what the house looked like during Roman times. A hidden gem in Rome and... More

We stumbled on this museum by chance one evening we couldn`t get into a concert in Via Nazionale. Not far from Piazza Venezia this palace is the entrance to a fascinating system of underground passageways into which one enters to encounter a visual extravaganza recreating the Roman House unearthed during renovations. Not for the faint-hearted who don`t like standing on... More

We did this tour today. It was incredible, truly a hidden gem. Good for families. We had two teenagers and they enjoyed watching the joining of technologies to take a glimpse into the past.

This was recommended by our B&B. We have been to Rome several times but this was a very interesting and entertaining attraction. The glass floors do take some getting used to but after that it is great to see Rome lit up and the narration was also informative. I would recommend this for the adults and older children. A little... More

In the interests of being balanced, I have reviewed this place very highly before, however this time around I experienced some bad customer service that left a bitter taste. Having booked to see this attraction, and this time taking my kids, I was hit by a delay on my flight to Rome. No one's fault, these things happen, but I... More

I highly recommend to visit this site. When I asked my kids what was their favorite thing in Italy, they loved this place! It is a great thing to do in the afternoon as it has AC. It is really cool to step on the glass floors and slowly see ancient ruins lit up dramatically beneath you. We went there... More

Very interesting prevention of a Roman house from the late empire period using multi-media. Also, the tour covers Trajan's column. Note that the visit must be done with a tour so plan ahead on timing. Worth the time, which is a 90 min tour. It's also a nice respite from the heat of Rome as it is inside and underground.

This is 'ruins meets Disney' were you see the caverns of a Palazzo and Baths. Laser and lighting show is used to dramatize the pre-recorded tour. For me this was a waste of my time...but for the next guy, who knows? You can miss seeing a lot if your not first up to the small tight areas being featured. The... More

Shows how high roller Romans lived 2000 years ago. Lots of interesting objects and excavations overlaid with projectors for an interactive display so you're taken back in time. A must in Rome.

This was a great place to visit. The ruins themselves were amazing but when they added the special effects it was like seeing Rome as it once was. Obviously there was quite a lot of guesswork-'this might have been' etc-but it was all believable and well done. The mini lecture on Trajan's column was worth the money by itself. You... 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.
