Commissioned to be built in 1585, the palace is seat of the Province of Rome since 1873. The archaeological remains of ancient Roman house uncovered beneath Palazzo Valentini are now in permanent display, adding to Rome’s already rich and historical artistic heritage.
You probably haven’t heard of the underground ruins beneath this XVI century palazzo in the heart of Rome, but you should. Not only are they of two opulent Imperial-era villas, still with their gorgeous inlaid marble floors and mosaics, but they’ve been presented in a way you don’t see anywhere else in Rome.
Another bonus is the multimedia presentation that shows you what both the Palazzo Valentini area, and the center of Rome, would have looked like 1,800 years ago.
