  • We took our two teen sons here and we all enjoyed it very much. Only open to limited numbers on Sat and Sun so must be booked. It is a 'live' site where a hardhat is provided. There is lots of scaffol...  more »
  • Thanks to Google maps, we are gone also wrong as the speaker. This takes you directly to the Park, including the course/ruins. Look on the map where the Museum is noted. The tickets already previously beechen is open only on the weekend and the plant is to enter only with a guided tour. It is definitiv-worth the high rooms are impressive. The oculus rift rounds off the whole presentation. The archaeologist, who brought us, gave much trouble and managed, that you listened to her and bored not, where it requires much imagination without oculus rift would be everything up to make. If you have the time - then you should schedule with this stop.

  • Plunge into the underground to enter the House of history ... it only takes a few steps within this structure to feel part of his own story and thanks to the wise guidance of the companions begin to imagine life and spaces that we animated This beautiful old mansion of ancient Rome. The space devoted to media visit helps us understand even better the immensity of what you are visiting. Absolutely recommended.

  • Another hidden gem. Once you reach the entrance, which is not indicated/signposted at all. Get there with time enough to spare searching for the entrance or you might be late for your guided tour. Apart from that, guides are excellent and knowledgeable. The virtual reality experience is plus. Highly recommended.
  • The entire tour is underground. Not much has been restored but you get a real feel of how the Villa was laid out and decorated. The tour is different from all other tours I’ve taken. Lasts almost two full hours. Important: location in google is wrong. Apple has it right.
  • Touring this underground archaeological site was interesting and informative. I knew Nero was loathed but I didn't realize his own people guess his house of everything of value and then filled it with rubble - building a bath complex on top of it (ruins of which exist beside the playground on the top of the hill). It was also fascinating to learn about the artists who had "stolen" ideas by slipping into his abandoned rooms and replicating the art they found in Churches around Europe. I had a group tour in English. Well executed and interesting but COLD. Bring a jacket!
  • Highly recommended. The entrance is not hard to find if you are willing to do a bit of research beforehand. In my opinion more interesting than the colloseum, our guide was very informative and friendly. As said by others the virtual reality portion was great.
  • Fascinating site if you like archaelogy and Roman history. Tickets need to be reserved sevaral week in advance. Entrance is tricky to find. It's in a park, facing the Colliseum. Enter the street address manually, because currently Google's pin shows the entrance in the completely wrong location.
