Case Romane is accessible from a street named Clivus Scauri, one of the most significant ancient Roman roads on Caelian Hill.

Upon visiting the Roman Houses you will enter into the Room of the Geniuses (or “geni” – Roman mythological divine spirits present in every living being and objects).  This space was originally a storage area. the most ornate room is the vaulted Room of the Orant (Worshipper) based on the subject painted on the wall. The walls were painted during the 4th century, with figures of philosophers, a mask of Silenius, a female theater mask, fantasy monsters, sheep, and goats. Another room you will visit s The Nymphaeum of Proserpina which was originally an interior open-air courtyard that separated the residential buildings from the commercial ones. Niches, fountains, frescoes and mosaics are well preserved and quite remarkable.
