What to expect

The remains of the Stadium of Domitian (UNESCO World Heritage) are located beneath Piazza Navona, about 5 meters below ground. This archaeological area is what remains of the first and only masonry stadium known of in Roman history.The Stadium of Domitian was commissioned by Emperor Titus around 80 AD (the same year the Coliseum was completed). Today, this Stadium, once home to Roman entertainment, lies underneath a modern city. It is certainly worth a visit to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Depending on your needs you can choose between two different ticket options.

If you want to visit the site at your own pace and enter anytime during the opening hours of the site, without missing the stories behind the Stadium, you can choose the option Entrance + audio guide. The audio guide included in the ticket (for children too), illustrated panels, unpublished photos, and videos (also in 3D) tell the stories of the Stadium, Piazza Navona, sports in ancient Rome, and some of the city's major monuments.

If you want to have a more complete experience of the Domitian Stadium and the city of Rome, you can choose the option Entrance + guided tour that includes a 2-hour guided walking tour of Rome's most popular monuments and bustling piazzas.

Meet your personal guide at TOURISTATION NAVONA in navona Square. Take a walk through bustling Piazza Navona, perhaps the most beautiful square in Rome with its magnificent fountains, including the famous Fountain of the 4 Rivers by Bernini.The tour includes exclusive entrance at Navona Square underground.

Explore the Pantheon, the temple dedicated to all divinities. This magnificent building is considered the most well-preserved ancient temple in the world. Toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain, the largest and best-known fountain in Rome, to ensure that you will return to Rome one day.

The guided tour will end at the Campidoglio and from a fantastic spot, you will be able to have the greatest view of the Roman Forum and the Coliseum at night.
