The Eternal City is the most challenging as well as the biggest undiscovered museum of the world. A series of layers, made of debris, buildings, insulae, temples, shrines, one on top of the other, will make us travelling back in time, first to the Medieveal, than Early Christian and finally back to the ancient Rome.

An absolutely first rate tour with Fabio who has a deep knowledge of his subject and is clearly a great enthusiast of ancient history and architecture in Rome. His tour of underground Rome covers area that would not be seen in the course of visit to the usual landmarks and is recommended for those who want to understand the history of Ancient Rome in more depth. An excellent guide strongly recommended.
