“Very interesting site and our guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The 3D reconstruction was amazing we really enjoyed your tour thank you!”

JK, United Kingdom.
“One of the best tours available in Rome! Thrilling to be able to enter an archeological site and then to see the VR of the Domus. The video at the entrance is new and worth the stop to see the history of the site.”

Rapid confirmation.

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 to 23 visitors 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.

    This is a fantastic tour. We especially appreciated that tour groups are limited, and don't overlap each other. The virtual reality enactment was spectacular, and I wish it could be longer. It was a highlight of our trip to Italy. Thanks!
