Built in the 16th century, this is the seat of Rome’s provincial administration; the most fascinating bit of this building is that, during its renovation in 2005, archaeologists discovered the ruins of ancient villas underneath the structure. The excavations revealed Domus Romane, a huge complex spread over 20,000 square complex that housed two striking and peculiarly large 4th century patrician villas and remains of a private thermal bath.
Luckily or not, the previous architects of the 16th century preserved the ruins which are now open to public.
Walk in and you will be overwhelmed with the well-maintained staircases, frescoes, stunning mosaics and beautiful marble floors. The light show beautifies the ruins recreating the villas as they would have been in their hey-day.

One of the coolest archaeological experiences I could imagine! Historians knew there was a site in this area but it wasn't excavated until recently. The method of preservation is brilliant - leave everything intact and then clear plastic over it all as a floor. It is so immersive! Lasers and narrative through this guided tour bring the site to life. This is a must see if you are into Roman history! Gorgeous and well presented.
Highly recommended if you're interested in the ancient history of Rome - you won't ever get closer. Great use of modern techniques to present information!
Just OK. Interesting, but not the "genuinely thrilling" experience we had read about. We expected more from VR than projected images. We thought that meant some interaction. This is a tour of an underground site that includes projections onto the stones below the glass floor you walk on to show details and to envision how it might have looked in use. (And standing for almost all of the experience was tiring, again, not what we had expected from the description.) But if you love archaeology, perhaps you will be more excited by the tour than we were.
If you want to enter in Roman history you must see this. Amazing presentation.
Wow. Amazing. Laser pointers and holograms are used to bring an ancient Roman home to life. The site only allows small guided tours, not individual exploration. Well worth the visit.
