Rome will have the world’s first metro station that is ‘integrated’ with archaeological ruins discovered thirty foot underground while building the city’s third metro line (Amba Aradam metro stop – between San Giovanni and the Colosseum). It’s the barracks for the Roman Praetorian guards dating back to the period of Emperor Hadrian, in the second century A.D. Officials say the barracks cover 900 square meters, and include a 100 meter hallway with 39 rooms with ornate mosaic floors.
