  • Travel through time from Ancient Rome to medieval society via a slice of an excavated city block
  • Explore the excavation site under the museum and see the ruins of the crypt, a medieval granary, and cisterns
  • See a branch of the National Museum of Rome and an archaeological site 2000 years in the making

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!
