Excellent service. Keep the Good work

Crypta Balbi is the only one of its kind, a stunning city block that includes an archaeological excavation site, the ruins of an imperial building and a museum with striking artefacts from the past. Dive into this historic tour and understand how far the city has come from the imperial age. Thanks to the well-preserved archaeological layers, Crypta Balbi also shows us how Roman society along with the urban landscape evolved from antiquity!

Take some time to explore the lives of ancient tenants of this city block as you walk along the tattered streets towards the museum. Spend your time exploring the many archaeological objects on display at the museum, while macabre enthusiasts can make their way to the eerie crypt and cisterns.
