tickitaly.com - sightseeing, not queueing.

A fully guided tour to view ongoing restoration at the Domus Aurea. Explore Nero's 'Golden Palace' and step back into Ancient Rome.

The tour lasts approximately 75 minutes and is available in English, French or Spanish on Saturdays and Sundays only. Group sizes are restricted to 23 visitors, and you'll be accompanied at all times by an official guide. The only way to discover this wonder of opulent Ancient Rome is as part of a guided tour.

From 23rd June through to 7th January 2022, your ticket will include entrance to the exhibition Raphael and the Domus Aurea, 'The invention of the grotesque'.

Part of the tour offers a unique immersion in the day to day (though far from ordinary!) life of this incredible space via a series of virtual-reality and multimedia interludes. The exhibition begins towards the end of your visit and then continues in another space, one you'll be directed to at the end of the Domus tour. The exhibition can only be explored on the same day as your visit.

At a glance details:

  •   Voucher must be printed. You must print these vouchers in order to exchange them for your tickets - an email or a copy of the voucher on your phone or mobile device will not suffice.
  •   These are full skip-the-lines tickets, all fees and exhibitions included.
  •   Tours last approximately 75 minutes.
  •   Includes downloadable ebook guide.
  •   You'll meet at the main entrance to the Domus Aurea.
  •   The site is currently described as being 'partially accessible' to wheelchair users; given that restoration is ongoing, this tour is therefore not recommended.
  •   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.

IMPORTANT ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

Please note that in order to use your tickets you MUST be able to provide one of the following:

  • - Covid19 Green Pass certification (in digital or paper format) able to attest - together with a valid identity document - that they have received at least one dose of one of the vaccines authorized by the EMA or AIFA (Comirnaty by Pfizer-BioNtech, Vaxzevria by Astrazeneca, Janssen by Johnson & Johnson and Moderna)
  • Exemptions: COVID-19 Green Certification is not required for children excluded by age from the vaccination campaign (under 12 years of age) and those exempt on the basis of appropriate medical certification.
  • - Visitors from Israel, Canada, Japan and the United States - Vaccination certificates issued by the health authorities of these countries (complying with EU Recommendation no. 2021/912 of 20 May 2021) will also be accepted, but must include the identifying data of the person and data regarding the type of vaccine and date(s) of administration. Please note that certificates will be accepted if they are in Italian, English, French or Spanish. If the certificate is not issued in bilingual form and not in one of the four languages indicated in the Order of the Minister of Health of 18 June 2021, it must be accompanied by a sworn translation.

This documentation must be presented at the entrance when the body temperature is checked.

Security queues to check the Green Pass requirements may be a bit long so do allow plenty of time to ensure you do not miss your entrance slot. Have your Green Pass and ID ready for viewing. Whilst they may seem long, queues do move fast so please be patient. Thank you for your cooperation.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do not have a Green Pass and a valid identity document, you will not be able to access and your ticket will not be refunded. For further information www.dgc.gov.it
