Make it a ‘Must See Top Eleven’ list for your Rome visit with the new Domus Romane of Palazzo Valentini. Deep under the palace conveniently located in Piazza Venezia, near the gleaming Victor Emmanuel Monument (fondly called the wedding cake), is a modern exhibit that promises a fascinating 1.5 hour tour.
The remains of two luxury Roman homes with their original baths, mosaic floors and colorful frescoes are exhibited as-is, and then with computer generated projections of their original appearance. Good audio and guided commentary. Walking in the dark on vast glass floors over the illuminated ruins is fun. The guided tour ends in a super video that unrolls the story depicted in friezes on Trajan’s Column, detailing how the freizes illustrate the story of Emperor Trajan’s fascinating two campaigns two thousand years ago to Dacia (where you now find Romania) and the process of Roman military campaigns.

One Response to “Palazzo Valentini – A Rome ‘Must See’”
Pat, Thanks so much for recommending Classico for our stay in Rome.The three bedrooms/two baths worked out great for our party of seven. The sofa sleeper got no complaints,as well!!! We loved the location,and walked everywhere. Thank you for handling things when we had the debacle at the airport in Atlanta. They would NOT let my brother fly because his passport expired on August 22. This flight was on May 21..He was returning June 10th. HEADS-UP..They said it had to be at least THREE months from June 10th….so,they were a day late arriving.Thank goodness they were able to be at passport office first thing on the next day..paid extra for expedited passport,and made the same flight one day later!!! I know that it was extra work for Daniella to come back for their passports…anyway..after all of that –we had a wonderful family time in Rome. This was my second time using Italy Perfect in Rome..and hope to do it AGAIN!!!!
