Full description
Begin your tour by descending 5 meters below street level to explore the former circus in all its dimensions. As you walk, receive details about the travertine blocks, brickwork, and marble columns of the main entrances. Travel back in time and look at a selection of unpublished photographs, 3D reconstructions, videos, and informative panels that tell the story of the Stadium of Domitian. Learn about the development of the site into its current piazza, as well as the evolution of ancient Roman sports. Towards the latter stage of your tour, see artifacts from the days of the Roman Empire found during archaeological excavations. These include fragments of sculptures and a torso made from Pentelic marble from the quarries of Penteli, north of Athens.

I thought it was very interesting to see this! You wouldn't say this is under this square. You do have to go through the museum yourself and we thought someone was there. The people who would show us around found it more enjoyable with each other than they were busy with us. Really a must to do.
