Once you've selected a date on the calendar we'll show you the ticket options that are available, one or more of which may be of interest to you.

October 2014 and, after eight years it is finally possible to see some of this incredible place, albeit it in a limited fashion for the time being.

Restoration is ongoing (2018 is the projected time for all works to be finished) but at least there's now the possibility of seeing how things are progressing, as part of an official guided tour. Work largely stops at weekends and we're able to offer limited spaces on guided tours on Saturdays and Sundays. Please click on the calendar to see what's currently available.

Please be sure to wear appropriate footwear and also take along a warm jacket, for the high levels of humidity underground as much as anything else.

A fully guided tour to view ongoing restoration works at the Domus Aurea, Rome. The tour lasts approximately 75 minutes and is available in English, French or Spanish on Saturdays and Sundays only. Group sizes are restricted and you'll be accompanied at all times by an official guide.
The tour also includes a downloadable ebook guide in PDF, mobi and epub formats.

As of February 2017 the tours are even more special thanks to the introduction of multimedia presentations and 3D immersive technology that will give you the most amazing insights into the history of, and day to day happenings in, the Domus Aurea.

Please note that the 3D Oculus Rift headsets that are used as part of the virtual-reality time machine are not intended for prolonged use by children under the ages of 13, nor for anyone suffering from epilepsy or any serious eye conditions. Any and all multimedia commentaries are, for now, in English and Italian only.
