Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at a centrally located meeting point and set out to begin your explorations of underground Rome. Make a beeline for Piazza Navona, where you’ll uncover the little-known ruins that lie beneath the bustling streets of the busy square. Venture underground to view the impressive ruins of the Stadium of Domitian and learn how it was built by Emperor Titus Flavius around 80AD. Let your guide bring the ruins back to life as you hear about the athletic contests that once took place in the stadium and imagine what life was like in ancient Rome.
    Back at street level, stroll over to the Pantheon and pose for photos before the mighty Temple of all the Gods. See Hadrian's Temple and trace the path of the ancient Roman streets that run beneath the now-iconic landmark.
    Pause to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain – said to ensure that you will one day return to Rome – on the way to explore the Vicus Caprarius. Nearby, marvel over a Roman insula, surrounded by the walls of today’s Via di S.Vincenzo and Via del Lavatore. Learn how the area was a swamp in ancient times, before playing a part in the construction of the Virgo aqueduct, which still supplies the water to many of Rome’s fountains, including the Trevi Fountain.
    With your imagination stoked and your mind spinning with tales of ancient Rome, bid your guide farewell and end your tour in the Piazza de Trevi.

    As with many of the archeological tours, this would have benefited from an introductory video and digital site reproduction to provide context to the layers and ruins we would be seeing. The best part of the tour was in the basement of the shopping mall...More

    Hello. The tour departs at 10:30. I had to call them cause they don't bother putting up the info. I know it is late but it's an indication for other travelers if they choose to use this company. Spoiler alert: don't.

    I suggest you contact the Operator. We went on this tour at 9 AM from the Piazza Navona. Remember that this is a Small Group Tour so is subject to cancellation if not enough sign up or subject to sell out.
