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 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.

Back to Domus Aurea

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.
