The Palazzo Valentini is a very interesting archaeological site located under the Provincia di Roma complex on Via IV Novembre in Rome. It was fascinating to see the amount of space in the ancient home that was devoted to fitness and exercise.

I'm so glad that we went on this tour! Essentially it's an underground tour of ancient Roman houses. They use technology to augment the experience. I've never seen anything like it before and this was one of the best things that I saw in Rome! I read that you need to book online well in advance and you should probably do the same. It's really cheap (approx 10-12 Euros per person) and the tour groups are really small => no crowds. It's short too, approx 1.5 hours.

Don't miss this!

We saw this on tripadvisor and we glad we saw it! This side was not mentioned in our guidebooks!

All the good things said about Domus Romane is true! It is a walk through ancient time and after your visit you can imagine how it was in ancient time.

We visited it with our children (age 9 and 11). Be aware that the tours are only in Italian, French or English. The English you hear is very fast (It was a challenge to translate this for our children) but even if you cannot translate everything, your visit is very worthfull because of all the things they let you see with the modern techniques.

During the period we were in Rome it was very busy and the tour was sold out during the day we went. We were glad we had made an online booking. If you book online then at the end you can choose how you would like to receive your tickets. The 'Pick-up at the Venue Box Office' option is free of charge and means you can pick up your tickets at the entrance of Domus Romane.

Be aware that the entrance is on the courtyard (so not the first office you see while entering this Palazzo). On the courtyard there are toilets.

The tour lasts 1 1/2 hour.

Price adults: 11,50 euro
Price children: 9,50 (6-25 years)
Booking online: 1,50 euro extra per ticket

I had really looked forward to seeing the Domus Romane but we were told at the entrance that we Had to go with a tour and No, they didn't sell reserved tickets there. For reserved tickets we had to go 'someplace' else in the city. They Might be able to squeeze us into an English tour that day. We were very surprised at the brusqueness of the people at the desk as everyone else had been so pleasant and helpful.

It may be a wonderful site but is not set up for people to easily visit it and the staff's customer service attitude definitely needs to be reviewed.
