Rome: Immersive Underground and Piazzas Tour

6. Rome: Immersive Underground and Piazzas Tour

Immerse yourself in the city's history starting from Piazza Navona, one of the most charming and popular squares in Rome. The most beautiful parts of Piazza Navona are its three fountains, designed during the papacy of Gregory XIII. Erected in the center of Piazza Navona, the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi was designed by Bernini in 1651. After a look over Piazza Navona, you'll enter into the subterranean world beneath the streets of this square which is built over the site of the Stadium of Domitian. The stadium was used almost entirely for athletic contests, and for a brief period following fire-damage to the Colosseum in 217 A.D., it was used for gladiator shows. From the Stadium of Domitian you will go back on the street to move onward to the Pantheon. According to Roman legend, this is the place where at his death, the founder of Rome, Romulus, was seized by an eagle and taken off into the skies with the gods. From the Pantheon to the Secret Bath of Neptune you will have just the time to take a breath before entering into the Basilica of Neptune, built in Rome by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa in honor of Neptune. Next, travel to the Trevi Fountain and throw a coin in the water, adhering to tradition. Following the fountain, you'll enter into the subterranean world of Vicus Caprarius, also known as the City of Water. In this underground archaeological area of Vicus Caprarius you will find an intricate labyrinth of ancient remains: the remains of a domus of the imperial era; the castellum aquae of the Aqua Virgo aqueduct.

What people are saying about Stadium of Domitian

Tour scheduled for 10am, we arrived 10 minutes in advance, but the guide (Valéria) and the agency coordinator (Paolo) were already waiting for us. Both very professional, helpful and attentive. We know the sights provided for in the ad with an extra touch. Always with a lot of patience, the guide talked about the monuments and their history and still maintained the interest of our children throughout the period (after all, 3 hours is enough time to be able to entertain a 10 year old child and a 15 year old teenager) !

Excellent organization of acceptance, helpful and competent staff. the exhibition is well organized. The only slight annoyance is the simultaneous presence of guides with small groups that overlap the audio guide and stop the progress of the visit that has defined times. However I recommend going to see it

I thought it was very interesting to see this! You wouldn't say this is under this square. You do have to go through the museum yourself and we thought someone was there. The people who would show us around found it more enjoyable with each other than they were busy with us. Really a must to do.

exelent tour with a very nice and knowledgable guide (Valeria). strongly recommended

A great experience, recommended! We enjoyed it very much, Thanks!
