Overview

There’s more to Rome’s ruins than the Colosseum! Discover the secret sites and hidden gems of ancient Rome on this 3-hour tour of underground Rome. Explore the evocative ruins of the Stadium of Domitian, the Pantheon and Hadrian’s Temple, and venture off (or under) the beaten track as your guide reveals the last vestiges of the once-mighty Roman Empire. This small-group tour is limited to 13 people, ensuring a personalized experience.
  • 3-hour walking tour of underground Rome
  • Venture beneath the streets of Rome to explore little-known Roman ruins
  • See the Stadium of Domitian, the Pantheon and Hadrian’s Temple
  • Stroll around Piazza Navona and admire the Trevi Fountain
  • Learn more about Rome’s ancient history and empire from a knowledgeable guide
  • Small-group tour limited to 13 people ensures a personalised experience
Meet your guide at a centrally located meeting point and set out to begin your explorations of underground Rome. Make a beeline for Piazza Navona, where you’ll uncover the little-known ruins that lie beneath the bustling streets of the busy square. Venture underground to view the impressive ruins of the Stadium of Domitian and learn how it was built by Emperor Titus Flavius around 80AD. Let your guide bring the ruins back to life as you hear about the athletic contests that once took place in the stadium and imagine what life was like in ancient Rome.

Back at street level, stroll over to the Pantheon and pose for photos before the mighty Temple of all the Gods. See Hadrian's Temple and trace the path of the ancient Roman streets that run beneath the now-iconic landmark.

Pause to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain – said to ensure that you will one day return to Rome – on the way to explore the Vicus Caprarius. Nearby, marvel over a Roman insula, surrounded by the walls of today’s Via di S.Vincenzo and Via del Lavatore. Learn how the area was a swamp in ancient times, before playing a part in the construction of the Virgo aqueduct, which still supplies the water to many of Rome’s fountains, including the Trevi Fountain.

With your imagination stoked and your mind spinning with tales of ancient Rome, bid your guide farewell and end your tour in the Piazza de Trevi.

This tour was very enjoyable and I would recommend to anyone. It was a nice combination of above and below ground sites, (mostly above) and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating for everyone with questions and other special requests. The audio system used was better than some of the others we have used on our trip and made it very easy to understand Alex's running commentary on all the sites.

It could have been more interesting in half the time. The guide repeated the same information and didn't seem knowledgeable.

This tour is advertised as underground Rome but we spent most of our time above ground - so thats a bit misleading. The guide was very knowledgeable but it was A LOT of the guide talking and not enough time for us to take pics and look at the many wonderful sights.

This was super interesting! Loved it! The tour guide was super knowledgeable and was very thorough in her explanations. I realized that Rome had a lot of history but had no idea to what extent of it was underground. Absolutely loved it and will 100 recommend it to anyone I know going to Rome in the future.

Sarina, our guide, was amazing. She had great, easy to understand English, and her knowledge of the sites we visited was first class.
This tour was the BEST tour I did of Rome! It was very interesting.
Also, a new addition to this tour was the BONUS visit to a recently discovered area of the Piaza. Opened only 2 weeks prior. May 2017
Great value tour. Thank you.

When you hear of Trevi fountain, Piazza Navona or Pantheon, you assume the current tourist spots but there's a lot more than meets the eye. This tour by MEA Tours and Travels is an eye-opener. The knowledgeable and passionate guide took us to spots some not even open to public but just to the group where you can view ruins of earlier structures over the newer ones.
