Amid the construction of the luxury Palazzo Naiadi Hotel, workers encountered a teeny problem not all too uncommon in the Italian capital: They were building a hotel on top of an ancient Roman bathhouse.
In order to preserve the ancient structure, the construction team took a slightly revised course, and the bottom floor of the Palazzo Naiadi was changed to a museum of sorts. If you venture downstairs, you will be greeted to two spacious rooms with thick panes of glass on the floor, offering the surreal experience of looking down at ancient ruins below your feet.
