  • Having already visited many other ruins, including other homes, I did not realize this one would be completely different. Instead of walking among the ruins, you are on an upper level see-through...  more »
  • The price of this attraction is included in the Roma pass (two free attractions for the 72 hour pass). It is a bit hidden away, not far from the colosseum and not as famous as the other attractions...  more »

  • Been a couple of times and it's always very well presented. Not recommended for anyone who isn't happy looking through a glass floor at exhibits, but the lighting and special effects brilliantly bridge the gap between ruins and real life. Recommended for anyone interested in Roman history and archeology.
  • I've never been to a museum quite like Le Domus. It really stands out in comparison to the other museums and galleries in Rome as this museum utilizes technology to give visuals and explains the historical background of this Roman bath house. No need for imagination when you visit here! The tours last about 90 minutes and tour groups are very small. Book in advance!
