Piazza Navona in the eye of time

The tickets worked great. A really interesting tour. The audio guide was very helpful, because this is the only way to really imagine the arena and learn very interesting information. The tour is very well signposted and there is an extra audio guide for children. Really impressive, I can only recommend it.

Interesting History

As far as self guided activities go, this is a good one. Although the place is not very big at all, the audio guide gives lots of information that is nowhere else in the museum. Also, it's really neat to see how things have changed over the decades. Inside the floor is really uneven with some ruts and things so just be careful walking!

It is interesting and the audio guide is essential However the audio guide is confusing. The numbering in the areas is a bit chaotic so not always clear what the guide is referring to
