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!

The tour underground is supervised with a guide with the explanation and history presented via audio in each room. The video at the end explaining Trajans column was excellent. Be aware that it is quite dark which could be difficult for those with impaired vision. We spent a lot of time standing around in the dark as the lights don't stay on very long in each room or when highlighting different areas. I feel this could be improved though enjoyed the tour overall.
