What to expect

Take part in an underground journey that will take through the lives of the citizens of ancient Rome: enter the complex of residential and commercial buildings where people once lived and worked, decorated with frescoes and mosaics. This unique site is located below the Basilica of Saints John and Paul, on the Clivus Scauri street, one of the most significant ancient Roman roads on Caelian Hill.

Upon visiting the Roman Houses you will enter into the Room of the Geniuses or “geni” – Roman mythological divine spirits present in every living being and object. The most ornate room is the vaulted Room of the Orant based on the subject painted on the wall during the 4th century. Next, you'll visit the Nymphaeum of Proserpina, originally an interior open-air courtyard that separated the residential buildings from the commercial ones. The Niches, fountains, frescoes and mosaics are still a well preserved and quite remarkable sight. At the conclusion of this tour, you'll get to enjoy a typical Roman an aperitif with food and drinks prepared following 2.000-year-old recipes inside pottery, glasses and disposable plates inspired by the ancient tables.
