This museum only takes small groups at a time, so you are strongly advised to book a place. English-speaking tours are not very frequent. However it is worth persevering because the tour gives a fascinating insight into domestic life in Ancient Rome, as you walk on glass floors above mosaics, bathrooms, drains, debris and even a column of the Emperor...

This is a visit to the foundations of a private home that is underneath the prefecture offices at Trajan Column. It is all done with projectors and special lighting. Having been to most of the other museums in Rome this one is unusual and done differently than all others. Only small groups can go in at any given time so... More

Explore the Roman villa beneath this Renaissance palace. The glass floor over the ruins gives a unique perspective that is further enhanced by digital images. You also have a unique view of Trajan's monument. Recommended.

Staff at the museum didn't seem at all sympathetic and said it was up to us to take it up with Viator for... More

Not our type of museum. 99% audio tour with projector screens. Walk on top of ancient ruins which is pretty cool . Nice tour guide. Do not follow TripAdvisor address, place is in front of colonna

Just to the side of Trajan's column these are the remains of 2 high status villas destroyed by an earthquake. The remains are fragile and It's all under a glass floor so you look down on them. Selective lighting and some nice cgi help to hive an impression of what the villas might have looked like. Marble is still fixed... More

Very interesting to learn about an ancient Roman villa, how it was build, how it disappeared, how another building was build on the ruins and how the villa was discovered again.

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
