  • A great experience, to visit a lost imperial palace that must have been immensely luxurious. The virtual reality presentation is breathtaking. Our guide was a great expert and very friendly. It took nearly 1,5 hours, not too long for such a unique site.
  • Exceptional remains of an exceptional piece of history. A great destination for anyone interested in either history or the Roman Emperor Nero.

Also take care in finding the entrance, it is rather hidden ans if you're using maps, search for "Domus Aurea Entrance"
