Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I have been to this venue a few times, and it keeps getting better. Where once it was just a quick trip into the crypt, now there is an impressive museum documenting the history and traditions of the Capuchins. The staff are pleasant enough, and it’s certainly a worthwhile experience.

    Small museum, mainly dedicated to Federico Fellini, but also to some movies that have been filmed there (you surely enjoyed The Roman Holiday). Then guided tour through some sets already used in various productions. One in all, a place to see, considered to be the second largest "movie factory" in the world. Far from traditional touristic attractions.

    Me and 2 other friends booked a room and did not know what to expect. Turns out this was one of the best escape rooms we had ever tackled. The host speaks Italian and English and tells amazing stories to the rooms. The riddles have Italian and English versions to them. Definitely a must stop for any daring tourists in Rome!

    We were not quite sure what to expect as a couple of 50 somethings with an enthusiastic interest in the Romans. We didn’t need to worry, as our host and dottore Olympus was excellent. He clearly is very knowledgeable about the life of gladiators , and has a deep passion for Ancient Rome which was infectious.

    He even put up with my inability to remember any of the fighting techniques when it came to our own battle in the arena! We were more barbarian than Roman, unfortunately. However, I definitely recommend this experience whether you are a couple like us, or a family.

    We were 2 friends, came without booking and checked if they have a room for us. The guy on the front desk was very nice and helped to match a room that was perfect for us!! After that, Favio came to take us to the room, was very nice and profesional and guide us, we did the white house and even though unfortunately we couldn't escape on time Favio gave us few extra minutes until we got out.. We were so happy from the room (beautiful room, hard puzzles and cery impresive technically) that we decided to do another room right after.. Aladdin was a little bit easier but just as fun!! Highly recommended!!!!

    My first ever escape room experience. I had this idea that escape rooms were a bit lame, to be honest. But my fiancé really wanted to try it. So, I booked l'annegatore. Omg. It was amazing. It was scary, challenging, exciting, and fun! We did quite well, finishing about 90% of the challenge. The actor was exceptional! He scared my boyfriend enough to make him scream out loud and actually hide behind me, hahahaha. I can't wait to go back to this location and try the second challenge. And then we'll definitely go to the second location. It was well worth the money. I didn't want it to end! I am so happy we went!!!!!

    Very fun and something different to do in central Rome with your partner or your friend group. The cold inside is not unbearable especially with the jacket they give you. Also good drinks (90% of them are vodka based as we were told) and served inside an ice glass. Definetely worth many photos.

    Such a fun experience. Alessandro was very inviting, and all of the bars visited were a vibe! We were able to interact with other tourists who were all seeking a good night out and it was a success.

    My wife and I went to Rome on a mini-honeymoon and we hired a scooter. I have never ridden one, many streets in Rome are cobbled and not smooth, and the Italians have their crazy driver reputation, but.... we loved it! The traffic can be a bit crazy, but no worse than any other city, in fact, the cobbled streets keep speeds lower.
    We only hired the scooter for 5 hours, but wished we had done more. It is a great way to get around the city. The hire process was simple. They provided everything required. We upgraded to a larger 125cc as I am 6'2" and that was no problem at all.
    Highly recommended!

    I’m in town for vacation, and my back is giving me problems—really tight/knotty.

    I call and get in 1 1/2 hours later. They are open late. I got lucky they had availability. My therapist did a great job of deep tissue and stretching. She used oils that conditioned my skin.

    I showered off before changing back into my clothes.

    If in Rome, sight seeing can leave you tired and sore. Go here for a lovely relaxing experience.,

    The room we tried was super difficult in the best way! Everything was perfectly challenging and added to the feel of the room. The staff was so accommodating and even gave us some prosciutto and melon on the house (probably because he felt bad for us - we needed a lot of clues for our room🤣). Also has an awesome beer selection! Would definitely come back again!
