Description

Enter the Domus Aurea or Golden House, designed just for pleasure by Emperor Nero, a man known for breathtaking acts of self-pleasure. Experience the history of one of the most aesthetically stunning buildings ever built, once home to luxuries such as mosaics, marble furniture and even a rotating dining room!

In the 15th century, an unsuspecting man slipped through a crack in the slope and fell into a secret underground chamber. Generally, that would be a bad thing. Fortunately for him, however, he ended up in the magnificent house of the confused Emperor Nero, which had been hidden underground for centuries. Who knew if anyone else had found it?!

Local artists and important European personalities such as Michelangelo, Casanova and the Marquis de Sade soon followed, until the intricate frescoes, ceilings and vaults were no longer such a secret.

Now an active archaeological site, you will still get a taste of what this place once looked like when you arrive with your guide. Snoop around and find out what happened within these walls!

In its heyday one would have seen ivory walls, fine marble fittings, ceilings plastered with intricate mosaics and artificial lakes. There was even a revolving dining room that blessed the guests with perfume and rose petals!
