It was a perfect experience. The guys at the reception were great. I only wish the movie was more focused on the roman period, and support for Bluetooth headphones. Recommended!!

This attraction was a good historical perspective and intro to Rome. We went to this our arrival day in Rome and it was a helpful background for the sightseeing we would do over the next three days.

Wonderful introduction to the history of Rome

Welcome To Rome Experience
Excellent. The film took us back in time when Rome was just an insignificant series of 7 villages. We were taken forward to the Etruscan period. It dwelt on the legend of the twins of Romulus and Remus the children Mars and Venus. This was the founding of the city of Rome. In the legend Romulus and Remus were in conflict. The film went through periods of monarchy, emperors, middle ages, renaissance up to the union of Italy in 1870 and the formation of the Vatican starting from the 4th century AD. A very enjoyable film.
