  • Through acquaintances we had to get the tip to visit the excavations under the Palazzo Valentini. Spontaneously we got 2 tickets for a guided tour at 17:30, which fortunately only consisted of 5 people. The guide consists of 2 parts: the visit to the excavation of a Roman villa and the Declaration on Trajan's column. The excavations of the Villa with its former premises are covered with glass, through which you can walk and visit. This tour adds multimedia projections and small films, which is very well done. Trajan's column is explained also in a presentation in their history and their individual image sequences, including real look at this from the cellar. Small downside: the guided tours (1.5 hours approx.) occur only in English or French, not in German. Admission € 12,-is always worth the thing.

  • Wow. Amazing. Laser pointers and holograms are used to bring an ancient Roman home to life. The site only allows small guided tours, not individual exploration. Well worth the visit.
  • Wonderful experience into an ancient Roman home and a great movie describing Trajan's Column at the end.
  • A Pearl, an extremely skillfully performed show. To a history freak a real must. Wins Tutankhamen`s grave, Lucy`s bones, absolutely The high point of my trip.
  • Amazing experience going through the history of rich families from Rome. My tour had only 5 People so that was very good tô see things without 100 chineses in the same space as it would have on other attractions from Rome.
  • wonderfull concept for a sound and light show. it last about 1h30. I am sadden by the fact that the rooms are very small and the group to big. As such, we can barely see what there is to see and constantly have to fight to see something. too bad as the concept is great

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
