Starting time
  • Visit an incredible site of ancient Roman history, 7 meters beneath the magnificent Palazzo Valentini in central Rome
  • Explore the restored ruins of luxurious houses that would have belonged to Roman nobility, as well as a bathing complex
  • See history come to life, with a 'virtual tour' which uses digital projections and special reconstructions to show you the world of the Romans like never before!

Ever wanted to visit Ancient Rome? With this special Augmented Reality (AR) tour of the magnificent Domus Romane, you can travel through thousands of years of history in an instant, and discover what it was really like in the third century. Incredible visuals and live projections bring the remains of these Roman buildings to life.

If you think learning about history is boring, this cutting-edge 'virtual tour' will transport you back in time – so you can experience Roman life first-hand.

The Domus Romane was discovered seven meters beneath the foundations of the 16th-century Palazzo Valentini, with excavations revealing the remains of several Roman houses and a bath complex. An expert team of art historians, archaeologists, and architects worked together to research and restore the ruins for public display.

Inside the 'Domus' you'll see the original mosaics, wall decorations, paving blocks, and other remains – and then see them brought to life with virtual reconstructions, computer graphics and live action films. Combining ancient history and futuristic technology, it's an unforgettable journey into the past!

Absolutely amazing! Both tour guides we're archeologists. These historical sites are overwhelming and the expert information we received from the guides helped us tremendously. There are many things to see and understand, not only at ground level, but below and above it.

It was an excellent exhibit where you could lean a lot about the history of Rome. I will recommend it to anyone wanting more information

Great presentation and special effects used to help one understand the archeological find. It was a bit disorientating at first to walk on the plexiglass floor and watch the presentation below. Loved the special effects that helped us imagine what the house might have looked like.

Amazing blend of the abstract and concrete. The design and implementation are beautifully done. The down side is that too many people are grouped together and not everyone can see in the narrow viewing areas. My advice would be to buy more of these inexpensive timed tickets than you need in order to limit the number of people in your group.

Absolutely out standing. A must for anybody that is interested in Roman history.
