Fascinating, but not much here! But worth the visit!

The Romans were amazing engineers, even more impressive when you realize they did everything with the crudest of tools (by modern standards). They were very smart about creating water storage for their towns, especially in areas that were not gifted with a natural water source. So, here they dug enormous underground chambers in order to collect and store rainwater. These rooms are amazing! Do stop here if you are in Amelia...well worth the reasonable ticket price...Wow!!!!

Do what the Romans do

Romans were actually more advanced in many respects. I wish I was born 2000 years ago. Nothing to add to what your eyes will see, it would be redundant

Interesting glance back in history
Aug 2016 • Couples
A really interesting looking into a Roman empire. We went (myself, boyfriend, brother, his girlfriend) for a tour after a day exploring Amelia. Brother is really into Roman history, boyfriend is an engineer and us girls like culture so were happy to go too.

The steps are very steep and the doorways into the individual chambers are very low arches so lots of bending down (we are all 5'9 or taller and had to bend double to get through some). The tour was in Italian but they gave us detailed handouts in English that had a map of the chambers and key focal points in each so we didn't feel like we missed out on information. We were all pretty astounded by the engineering feat the Romans had accomplished, and that they are still sound to this day!

Really good that they do teacher discounts. Both myself and brother's girlfriend are teachers so got a reduced rate despite not having any proof (any,way, how can you prove that you're a teacher?!). Love that the Italians are so trusting!

The tour was running a bit late and we thought we had missed it as we waited for 10/15 minutes for the doors to be opened, but turns out they were just running on Italian time. It didn't matter to us as we had no specific plans after, but it was the last tour of the day so we were getting a bit apprehensive.

Tour the Roman cisterns under the city
Sep 2016 • Couples
This was a tour of the Roman cisterns under the city. It was very interesting to hear about their history and walk through. The tour was a little long. It may have felt long because its in Italian and we read the English descriptions from cards.

Atmospheric and amazing - not to be missed!
Jul 2015 • Family
Amazing engineering. Atmospheric. Incredible to think of this water supply supporting the population of Amelia in Roman times - it must've been a very busy place.
