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, Italian or Spanish on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. 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.

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.
