Description

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!

Fascinating look at archeological levels dating back to early Roman times. Renaissance mansion built over Medieval walls laid up on Roman road and mosaic floors with Roman baths beneath. Digital enhancement is effective but darkness too long and too complete at times. Commentary is entirely recorded. English guide only leads group from room to room

This was the best tour for me. Being in Rome I wanted to learn about the old Roman civilization, this tour literally made me feel like I am back in time. Amazing explanation, visual projection on the actual findings on the excavation and comfortable small group. Highly recommend.
