Fascinating to realise you are under Piazza Navona! This has a very 'normal' looking shop front to it, so could be missed easily, but was worth finding it. The ruins are interesting, and the audio is useful, except a bit tricky that some of the...More

The best 8 euros that I spent. No one was there...so we could explore the ruins easily. Takes about an hour and that 8 euros includes the audio tour. This is one of the best things we did in Rome. We had about enough time...More

Stadio di Domiziano is underground. It is located right underneath Piazza Navona. It is hard to imagine there was actually a huge stadium on this beautiful public square, but there you have it! The emperor Domitian had the stadium built "for the people".... well, they...More

Really neat and smart museum a real must see and it only takes an hour. 2 problems which spoil the attraction. The first are the stall impolite and uninterested, second the plaques are numbered twice so you will find 2 x number 8 for example....More

Another underground Rome experience. It is self guided and you don't need more than 45minutes. Located at Piazza Navona, it brings you under current day Navona to when it was a Stadio. Quite interesting.

See also Piazza Navonna. This is a hidden secret that could so easily have been missed where it not for another trip advisor contributor. The Piazza sits about 5 meters above this ancient relic. The Stadio di Domiziano was a Roman arena where chariot racing...More

It's incredible to think that Navona square was in the past a stadium of athletics, built to satisfy the desires of emperor Domitian. What is left is not much, that's true. But yet it deserves a visit, better with a guided tour. It was my...More

The entrance is hidden. Look for Hotel Raphael and it is just opposite. It is a gem and you will se a part of Rome not known to many!

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
