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.

Francesca has a back ground of College, she knows deeply history and art but what make her quite different is her honesty, the passion she lives for ancients, a passion you can feel it. Walking with her a stone is not any longer a stone is alive, talk to you! Our best ever experience. Thanks Francesca to be like you are!!

Well Managed Tour

Our party enjoyed the tour very much.  Serena was an excellent guide:  very professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant. She expertly led the group of sixteen through the very crowded city all while providing exceptionally clear details of the surroundings. It was truly a well executed tour.

See Rome from a completely different perspective - Great tour and great guide! The nice thing is you can avoid the heat in the summer and the rain in the winter.

underwhelmed by underground Rome
Kevin C
, Aug 2019
Our guide did a great job of trying to make the tour interesting - with little raw material! We spent more time above ground than below and the under ground locations were a bit ho-hum. Rome has more to offer than this! Overall, this tour was a disappointment

A Great View of Underground (and Above Ground) Rome

It was an enjoyable tour to see both above and below Rome. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and did her best to make it engaging for the group. We highly recommend. In fact, we got separated from the group in front of the Pantheon as there were swarms of people...however, upon calling the main help desk of the tour company, the tour lady was contacted and she was able to put aside the group and, fortunately enough, find us at the designated spot — and seamlessly continued the tour as if nothing happened. We are grateful for their kindness and ensuring we were able to still enjoy the tour despite the hiccup in being separated from the group.

Spectacular Tour

This tour gives you access to amazing underground archaeological sites that are not visited by the general public. Flavio was my tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and eager to answer questions. We went to Piazza Navona (underground), the Pantheon and Trevi (underground). I highly recommend this tour and Flavio.

The amazing underground of Rome

Excellent tour of underground Rome. We enjoyed a private tour with a guide. Our guide Louisa was extremely knowledgeable and made the three hour tour very enjoyable. We saw various locations of ruins under the streets of Rome and learned much about the history of the ancient Romans. I highly recommend this tour.

Excellent tour!

This tour was very enjoyable and I would recommend to anyone. It was a nice combination of above and below ground sites, (mostly above) and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating for everyone with questions and other special requests. The audio system used was better than some of the others we have used on our trip and made it very easy to understand Alex's running commentary on all the sites.

It could have been more interesting in half the time. The guide repeated the same information and didn't seem knowledgeable.
