Agreement with

Roma Pass
What the agreement provides:

Free entry to the first 2 visited museums and / or archaeological sites and / or experience of your choice.
Reduced ticket to all other museums and / or archaeological sites and / or experience visited thereafter.



The immersive visit, lasting about 40 minutes, is itinerant and divided into 8 stages; develops within the archaeological area and requires the use of a viewer. There is a contingent entry to the area (max 10 people every 15 minutes). With the help of augmented and virtual reality, the visitor can immerse themselves in the history of the archaeological site. Thanks to the architectural and landscape reconstructions of all phases of the Circus, ranging from the first and simple wooden construction to the splendor of the imperial age and from the Middle Ages to the early decades of the 20th century, the visitor will travel in time: he will see the ancient Murcia Valley enrich himself with buildings, he will walk in the Circus among the shops of the time, he will witness an exciting race of chariots between shouts of incitement and overturning of chariots, until he gasps in front of the imposing Arch of Titus about twenty meters high, which he will see rebuilt before his eyes, in augmented reality and on a 1: 1 scale.

The narration is available in Italian (with the voices of the actors Claudio Santamaria and Iaia Forte), English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Japanese.

Subtitled versions are also available, in Italian and English, for deaf people.

Project promoted by Roma Capitale, Department of Cultural Growth - Capitoline Superintendency for Cultural Heritage, organized by Zètema Progetto Cultura and implemented by GS NET Italia and Inglobe Technologies. The scientific direction is by the Capitoline Superintendence for Cultural Heritage.
