Palazzo Valentini è un palazzo di Roma che si trova nel centro della capitale, in via IV Novembre, 119/A, a pochi passi da Piazza Venezia. Dal 1873 è sede della provincia di Roma, ora Città metropolitana di Roma Capitale e della prefettura.
La costruzione del palazzo si deve al cardinale Michele Bonelli, nipote di papa Pio V, che nel 1585 acquistò da Giacomo Boncompagni un palazzo preesistente all'estremità dell'allora piazza Santi Apostoli. Oggi il palazzo è separato dalla piazza da via Quattro Novembre, aperta successivamente per mettere in comunicazione la nuova via Nazionale con piazza Venezia. Il cardinale era proprietario anche di gran parte della zona che si estendeva, alle spalle del palazzo, sopra i resti del Foro Romano di Traiano e di Augusto, nota con il toponimo di "Pantano" perché soggetta ad impaludamenti. Negli stessi anni il quartiere che sorgeva sui resti del Foro Romano fu sottoposto ad un generale rialzamento del terreno e ad una sistemazione urbanistica con la creazione di un quartiere, detto "quartiere Alessandrino" in onore dello stesso cardinale, soprannominato "cardinale alessandrino" in quanto originario di Bosco Marengo, paese in provincia di Alessandria. Il quartiere venne poi distrutto negli anni venti e trenta per l'apertura di via dei Fori Imperiali.

Light is used to help reconstruct an ancient house and bath. It's quite interesting, though not on the level of the Domus Aurea. At the end there was a quick mention that we were walking through a WWII bunker - it would have been nice to hear more about this.

Interesting and captivating tour through the newly excavated ruins. This tour really stands out around all the other tours in Rome because of it use of different lights and projectors to highlight and recreate how things used to be. This is a must see to get a better understanding of ancient Roman life.

I take my students here every year. It is informative and easy to comprehend and appreciate, no matter how little you know about the Romans or how unimaginative you may be. Part of the rooms pass system, with being your first stop in antique Roma.

One of the best tours I've had in Rome. I wouldn't expect mind-blowing VR, but the presentation and pacing are excellent. This is a great way to bring otherwise mystifying ruins to life. Book in advance, as there aren't many tours offered per day.

This place is a joke! There is some tiny snow and the whole place is shut down. No service, nobody knows anything. We bought tickets in advance and now we are stuck. This is just ridiculous. Shame on you to treat tourists like that - very disappointing!!!

This is a fantastic example of how technology can really bring an ancient site to life. The remains of the ancient Roman houses are visible below glass floors and, as you walk on these glass floors through the different areas, recorded explanations are played. These explanations are synchronised with a light show that clearly highlights the features in the room that are being explained. Light shows are also used to bring back to life the houses, by projecting onto the ruins images of how they would have been nearly two thousand years ago. The presentation takes around an hour and a half and ends with an excellent step by step guide to the scenes decorating the adjacent Trajans column. Well worth a visit.

This was a great archeological site tour and museum. The tour shows the manner which they used to uncover the artifacts. The 3D video overlayed on the ruins to show what they may have originally looked like was amazing. The ancient mosiac tile floors and huge uncovered columns we're amazing. You are not allowed to take pictures during the tour. The picture I attached is the only picture they allowed you to take at the end of the tour.

Awesome museum combines archaeological evidence of this ancient Roman mansion — including baths, mosaic floors and painted walls—and 3d images to give an amazing picture of what Rome was like when the other nearby ancient ruins were the center of public life. A well done movie explains the Romanian conquest depicted on Trajan’s column directly outside. Very well done. Highly recommend for adults but also kids (8 and up). You need to reserve a tour in your preferred language. We stopped by before lunch and could get one at 4:30.
