“Wonderful visit !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

This is by far the best experience I have had with Roman ruins. Though I am a big fan of the Roman period, visualising ruins often proofs difficult, especially when there is little left. However, at Le Domus Romane a digital simulation guides you through the house of a wealthy Roman family. This nifty piece of technology highlights - quite literally - the important bits and 3D reconstructions help you picture what it may have looked like.

The simulation lasts for a while and is therefore worth the money spent. If you're under 25, bring along some form of ID with your birth date on it to get a discount. There are only a few English tours, so book in advance. There are ones in French, and of course, in Italian. Le Domus is very close to Piazza Venezia, so ideal for when you're around Trajan's Column and the Altare della Patria. It's even within walking distance of the Colosseum and the Forum

“Make the time for this tour of Le Domus Romane”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Excellent, well run and informative tour. Amazing special effects bring the ruins (which are lighted below a glass floor) to their original look and design, such as the simulation of "blue water" in a pool or fountain and painted frescoes on the walls of rooms... Make the time for this exhibit--well worth it.

“Glad We Went”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

It took us over an hour to find this place, and it turns out it is inside city hall, or rather under. The views of the excavated home under meters of Rome were enhanced by projections which brought it to life, or as it was when it was used 2000 years ago. The tour audio is recorded and video/pictures are computer driven too, so everyone gets the same info which was quite interesting. It's a bit impersonal, but given the slackness and apparent disinterest of the staff, that was fine. I'd recommend that you do go..and be sure to get tickets on-line in advance as English language tours are few, and each tour takes only about 25 people.

“This place is so great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Watch Rome come to life beneath your feet and all around you. Glass floors cover ruins that come to life during the show. Really excellent experience that you should not miss. If you are traveling with bored teens who are rolling their eyes at you because they don't get it, this computer assisted, multi media tour with a wonderful surprise at the end will capture their attention. It is also the best deal in town at the price. We are so glad we found this hidden gem on this site.
