Great "new" site in Rome: Le Domus Romane Di Palazzo Valentini

Jump to last reply

Well, apparently my TR didn't generate much interest. Since this nugget was buried in it I thought I should pull it out to make sure it got noticed. This was probably our favorite activity during our week in Rome and it was too new to be in either of my guidebooks and I've not seen it mentioned here. It was recommended to me by Francesca Caruso even though she wasn't available to be our guide during our stay.

These recently discovered (2005) ruins under Palazzo Valentini have been excavated and are shown under glass floors. A multi-media display highlights what you are seeing and also projects what it might have looked like. Very well done and a big hit for young and not-so-young. I can’t recommend this enough. Each group is limited to 16-20 people and there is only 1 English tour per day. Book ahead. Cost was only 7.50€ per person.
