Balbi Crypt is a block-long testament to Rome's pioneering past. Visitors can examine the lives of ancient tenants of this city block, from the Roman Empire to the Middle Ages.

Part of the National Museum of Rome, it was once connected to one of the smallest theatres in Ancient Rome. The museum displays archaeological objects used in daily life, and fans of the macabre can explore the subterranean crypt and cisterns. After your visit, head back up for a slice of pizza – if you can stomach it!

Insider tip

You can continue the time-traveling adventure by watching a short 3D film at the meeting point after the tour. Showing what the Colosseum, Underground Rome, Pantheon, and the Circus Maximus looked like during their heyday, the film will give a real sense of the living, breathing history that is contained within these remarkable remnants of the ancient world.
