The Domus Aurea reopens its doors

The Domus Aurea, which is Latin for Golden House, is a large landscaped villa built by the Emperor Nero in 64 AD in the heart of ancient Rome. It has been closed since December 2005 due to structural failures. However, the villa will soon reopen its doors to the public after what has been a complex restoration project. Guided tours of the site will take place every Saturday and Sunday, although the villa in its entirety won’t open until 2018 due to on-going restoration.

As a part of the current tours, which must be reserved in advance, visitors will be able to visit the Octagonal House, which is considered a masterpiece of architecture, as well as some of the halls in the western sector of the Domus Aurea.

The experience is sure to be unique and will delight fans of history, art and architecture!
