The best way to see how ancient Romans lived. Not crowded and a wonderful way to see the daily life in Rome.

Not sure about special appeal for kids but we enjoyed. Not great for those with vertigo or similar as glass floor over finds. Good light show giving history and highlighting significant finds and filling in the blanks in you imagination of how the Villa loomed in hey day. Didn't expect the interesting bit about Trajons pillar not so great for... More

Top educational and sensorial experience. Fully utilized 21st century technology combining art and professionalism as you dive into the ancient history of Rome. An unexpected experience for all ages in Rome, not to be missed. It was the crown jewel after visiting Mercati di Traiano - Museo dei Fori Imperiali.

This is one of the most amazing tours I have done to date. This tour combines ruins and virtual recreation to show you what a Roman villa would have looked like. Additionally you get a recreation of Trajan's Basilica and shown the reliefs in vivid detail telling Trajan's conquest of Dacia (currently Romania). Lastly you walk through a private bunker... More

this museum of an old roman house found buried beneath the current Palazzo Valentini is amazing. the use of multimedia elements brings the house alive and allows us to make a great visit - worth for adults and kids. our kids loved it (the small one of 4 was initially afraid as it was very dark in the initial presentation)...

Visiting the Doums Romane was a wonderful experience. Well organized, educational. We booked our tickets in advance online. This is a multimedia experience approx 1.5 hours and well, well worth the 15 €. Combines Ancient Rome with modern technology. This would work well for families. Small groups, excellent commentary. Don't want to give too much away as the way this... More

This is a great thing to do in Rome - especially with kids. Pre-book onto the correct tour for your language and allow about 90 minutes. The tour starts in an unassuming way down a few corridors of a modernish building but you soon arrive into the basement where archaeologists have uncovered an amazing roman villa. You are led into...

This is a tour of the excavations beneath the Palazzo Valentini. The tour is a multimedia tour with use of projection to help understand the construction and decoration of the house. This is extremely well done. Parts of the house are very well preserved. The tour lasted 1.5 hours and it was a pity that we did not have more... More

The Roman excavations under Palazzo Valentini are ingeniously presented with lights and projectors that creates an immersive experience. Moreover, the narrative and course of the tour is well constructed in a way that especially holds the visitors interest with amazing things being revealed throughout the course of the tour. The only reason why I have not given the tour five... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
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 neighbourhood 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.
