  • This museum opened not long ago-a few years ago and so far it seems to be not turned in mandatory programs the average tourist. Although the popularity of him not to give up-it's better to book tickets in advance. We were lucky and had empty seats, but it is better not to risk it. The only thing I'm not sure there are guided tours in Russian (or rather, I'm almost sure that they do not exist), but in English. This place is a perfect example of how to do modern Museum, and how Italians can still make it to and not just continue to exploit antiquity without any creative and intellectual effort. Actually, I wouldn't even called Domus Valentini exactly Museum in its classical meaning. It is rather a reviving the ancient world around you. The action takes place underground, under Palazzo Valentini, where ancient Roman buildings have been found. With the help of modern technologies and graphics you are immersed in the world-see the House as it saw owners, hear their voices and discover a life that flowed here millennia ago. Tour themes built in some degree on rules of cinema or television, where at the end you will find the most exciting moment, which I will not reveal, so as not to spoil the surprise for those who there will be. In general-this place is necessary for the visit!

  • When it comes to history and archaeology in Rome there are plenty of sites to visit, but this exceeds everything that traditionally you expect from an archaeological site. The remains of Roman houses excavated are recounted and "reconstructed" through technology, so that the visitor feel like being catapulted nearly back in time. Try it and you will not regret it; I have been there 4 times since they opened (whereas the excavations under palazzo valentini continued in time and the tour has changed) and I enter this visit among the finest ever made. It is a truly unique experience, don't miss it if you go to Rome!

  • I never imagined that under a building were preserved Roman domus. It was an incredible experience even for special effects all "Piero Angela" that I'd suggest also to Pompei, Ecolano and Oplontis
