Ancient Underground Roman Domus with multimedia experience

Did you know that it was possible to visit the fascinating remains of the patrician "Domus" of imperial Rome? 

Enjoy a virtual tour, just underground Palazzo Valentini. Thanks to virtual reconstructions you will feel like you are in the time of the Roman Empire.

Start your experience with a multimedia video which shows the past and the present of the most important monuments in Rome, including the Colosseum, Roman Forum, St. Peter's Basilica, Castel St. Angel, Circus Maxiums and Ara Pacis. The video is shown inside the Touristation Office before you begin exploring the Domus.

Admire the virtual reconstruction of rooms, walls, mosaics, peristyles, kitchens, baths, furnishings and decorations: all come back to life, thanks to a virtual tour of a great Domus of ancient Rome. The results are of exceptional significance, revealing an area that was of great importance in Roman times and which can help piece together the ancient, medieval and modern topography of Rome.

You will also have the opportunity to observe how the area of Trajan's Column looked at the time. A virtual reconstruction of the column gives you a close up look at the bas-reliefs and the story they tell of Trajan’s military campaign: the conquest of Dacia, present day Romania. It's a great evidence of the past to add to Rome rich historical and artistical heritage. A unique and magnificent example of how the artistic heritage of antiquity, regenerated by careful restoration, can be enhanced with the use of new technologies.
