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.

    We first visited here in 2016 so we’re excited to see how the work has evolved. The video at the beginning is fascinating and gives you a sense of how amazing this site used to be. Really interesting to see some new sites and the use of VR really adds to the experience.

    Our guide who’s name I missed was funny and informative.

    Look forward to coming back again once all the excavations are complete!

    This museum and crypt are located near Fontana Tritone so quite easy to access .
    There is a well done audio guide to accompany your visit and an extensive history with many artefacts of the Capucin order are on display.
    The crypts art an artful display of mortality and are arranged in a restful way, referring to the repose of the souls of the many religious members buried there.

    Step back into Rome’s Gladiator history! What better way to experience Rome than by learning how to wield a sword, shoot arrows and protect yourself in a Gladiator Ring! Wear authentic robes and belts while training on a field that could be the same as it was centuries earlier. My boys 17, 19 and 59 (lol) returned back for another round (we came five years earlier!) Once again they experienced the proper way to hold a sword and how to properly slay your opponent! Thankfully the swords are wooden!!! The arrows...they are real...so are many other aspects of this unique adventure. Make sure your batteries are charged, take pictures and get ready to speak about this experience for years to come! Enjoy the hospitality too...yummy treats after the battle. Super nice host Alex who is a wealth of information, and check out his arm! You do not want to go against him in the ring....or Dario who taught my boys.,,a mixed martial arts expert who knows his way around! A must do!

    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!

    I had never done an escape room before and I'm so glad I started with this one. It started on time, our guide was excellent, it was spotlessly clean and staff very friendly.

    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.

    We did both rooms and they can easily compete with the top ones out there. They use really great theming and thought out gameplay to get you immersed into the storyline. The hosts are awesome. They were really friendly and welcoming. We already did a lot of great escape rooms around the world, and this one is certainly one of them.
