The impressive Piazza Navona follows the shape of the Stadium of Domitian (86 A.D.) where Greek-based Athletic games were once on display - mainly running races, but also boxing matches, and, believe it or not, some kind of Latin Poetry competitions... To-day, in one corner...More

Amazing to actually walk among the hidden Rome beneath Piazza Navona. Great exhibition showing the remain of the Stadium Domiziano. I would recommend this as a fascinating piece of Ancient Rome.

This site is definitely worth a visit, but it was very difficult to use the audio guide as the numbers and arrows were all mixed up. After a while I just sort of gave up on it to be honest. I also didn't like the...More

I'm not joking, a ticket will cost you € 8 and as soon as you go down to see the "stadium", you'll have a feeling of "Is that it?". From the outside you can see (for free) an entrance of the stadium, and with that...More

Fascinating to realise you are under Piazza Navona! This has a very 'normal' looking shop front to it, so could be missed easily, but was worth finding it. The ruins are interesting, and the audio is useful, except a bit tricky that some of the...More

Another underground Rome experience. It is self guided and you don't need more than 45minutes. Located at Piazza Navona, it brings you under current day Navona to when it was a Stadio. Quite interesting.

With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
