What people are saying:

The Domus Aurea is an palace, built by emperor Nero. Altough it can only be visited with a guided tour, it's a must see in Rome. It's pretty impressing, how huge the area of the domus aurea was.

    The Remains of Nero's Extravagant Palace

    Superbly-informative Tour for Roman Archaeology Enthusiasts. For general visitors the virtual reality was breath-taking.

    It's amazing what can you find underground in Rome

    It is an amazing place to visit in Rome. It is unbelievable what can we find underground in Rome. The visit is completed by virtual reality that shows us how this place was in the time of Nero.

Additional Information


Built by the Emperor Nero in ancient Rome, Domus Aurea has become a historical landmark that holds one of the most exciting historical stories in the area. It is said to cover 100-300 acres throughout the slopes of Palatine, Esquiline and Caelian hills. Today, different areas have begun to decay due to the moisture and the flooding that has occurred over the years. Up until recently, it was open to tourists to walk through different areas while hearing the tales of history that have made it what it was and what it is to this day.
