Description

A trip in the Time Elevator is light-hearted, thrilling, and surprisingly informative. From the founding of Rome to the modern day Eternal City, don't just learn about Rome's history: live it!

Just off Rome's famous shopping street - the Via Del Corso - the Time Elevator takes you on an exciting journey that involves all the senses. In just 45 minutes, this unique attraction whisks you through 3,000 years of Roman history.

Using stereoscopic, mechanical, and digital technologies, this immersive experience takes you to many key events in Rome's history including: the world of twin brothers Romulus and Remus; the plot to kill Julius Caesar; Michelangelo's struggle to create the fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Using three large wide screens, language-calibrated individual headsets, mobile platforms with motion simulation, and incredible effects, you'll dash through 2750 years of history in less than an hour. Afterwards, Rome will never be the same.

Whether as a first activity to introduce Rome's history to your family, as an end-of-trip wrap-up, or just because you feel like it, the Time Elevator is a fun and family-friendly way to experience some of Rome's historical highlights. Also important to note: the time travel technology they use is totally safe, so there’s no chance of a Marty McFly-type crisis.

And if your appetite for time travel isn't sated after "History of Rome", your ticket is also good for "An Ode to Life". In this film you travel all the way back to the Big Bang (13.7 billion long years ago), and go through the evolution of life on Earth. You'll narrowly escape being a T-Rex's lunch, and spend time with primitive cavemen. As dangerous as it sounds, the Time Elevator has never left anyone in the past.

The Time Elevator leaves once an hour; don't get left behind.

The activity is great for kids and teenagers how doesn’t know about Rome. It’s gives a good general knowledge about the history of Rome to start with.

This was a fun experience and very informative in an easy format to suit young and mature minds. I would recommend seeing it for yourself and you can make your own mind up.

Very enjoyable. However the motion was unavailable for the History of Rome on the day we visited.

A fine introduction to the history of Rome. The movable seats can be a little on the rough side with some hard jolts.

It was an experience. People with motion sickness might reconsider. The employees were friendly.

I've been to some good Time Travels, but this one was not worth going to.
It costs a lot and lasts shortly, the content is very poor.
