The whole experience was more than terrible!! first the ticket office is too overcrowded,due to the fact the queue waiting to go inside the "elevator" is in the same room! Super unfriendly staff,inside the elevator...equipment from the 80's...I think that since the launching of this facility years ago there have not been any renovations or updates! The movie is more...

Bought tickets for Origin of life and History of rome, after the first show, which was filled with screaming kids and mostly broken equipment, not to mention the 1st grade level information, my son (11 y/o) did not agree to stay for the history part, we left, waste of time and money.

Slightly odd and disjointed but overall it was a bit of fun and our nine year old thought it was absolutely brilliant. Not sure of the necessity of all the jolts and jerking about, didn't really fit in with the film but it we did all enjoy ourselves.

Worst place ever. The ride was terrible. It was jerking you around and not even moving with the movie. The movie was out of focus and the headphones quit working half way through. I will never recommend some one to this terrible place.

though apparently it says 5D,BELIEVE ME ITS NOT, couldn't feel any effect just apart from the ride/seats moving & jerking around. though it gives u an insight of EVOLUTION OF MAN & HISTORY OF ROME, i would say go there if u need some time pass,waste time. GOT BORED!!

Nothing special but it is good for time wasting, if you have nothing better to do. Staff are lovely and the price is cheap round about 12 euro a person.

It's fun. The cinema room itself is very nice. It's unique in Europe I think. For my kids it was a bit old fashion.

Very cool new experience with moveable chairs. It shows that history can also be very entertaining and not only reading in old boring books. Sometimes the sound was too loud but all in all very cool.

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
