The guided tour was great. The tour guide, historian in my words, was knowledgeable about the history, the period, Nero and how this palace came to be excavated. He was amazing and we let him know that as well. Thank you, Thank you.

ABSOLUTY INCREDIBLE!!!! The Domus Aurea is a site right next to the Colleseum that most do not know about. The tour itself was exellent, but the virtual reality experience was above and beyond any expectation! I HIGHLY recommend this view of lost history.

Fascinating place and really enjoyed the tour. I would have found it really beneficial to have seen more drawings of what rooms may have looked like and more floor layouts that were larger to enable me to understand where I was.

Great tour and very fascinating history. Archeologist that was our tour guide was a spitfire and was very obviously passionate about archeology. She made the tour even more exciting.

AMAZING!!!!!!! We were lucky enough to be in Rome for this limited tour and I am so glad we were! The tour guide was awesome! She’s one of the archeologists that first started the dog on Nero’s Palace. Her enthusiasm was infectious. Walking through the stuccoed and frescoes hallways and rooms in the palace was an experience unlike any other. I would go this your again in a heartbeat! Highly highly recommended!

Auch ohne die 3D-Brille war die Führung auf Englisch sehr ausführlich und sehr informativ. Das Domus Aurea ist außerordentlich faszinierend und auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert.

The tour was great because of our guide Alex who was knowledgeable but flexible and funny. Everything was well organised and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Where do these reviews come from?
About two weeks after you have used your tickets we send an email asking you for your feedback on tickitaly.com and on the individual attractions that you visited. We ask our customers to give us and our tickets a rating out of five stars and to write a short review - all of these reviews come from people that have bought tickets from us.
Why are there more stars awarded than reviews?
Many of our customers opt to award stars rather than write a review.
Why do some reviews have a ? instead of stars?
Some reviewers opt to write a comment but don't enter a star entry. These are sometimes positive and sometimes negative - we include these reviews in the listings after the starred reviews, but we don't include them in the overall ratings.
Where is my review? I can't see anything in the list?
Each review is checked by our staff in order to avoid posting inappropriate content or personal details, and to see if the customer has had a specific problem that needs to be addressed. In most cases these reviews go online with their star rating and any comment that has been made. In the cases that there is an issue that we have to address, such as refunds or specific complaints, we flag the review for response. In those few cases, any star rating is immediately taken into account in our ratings but the actual review is only posted once we have resolved the issue or had an opportunity to respond. Any editorial comment will be clearly highlighted like this: [Tickitaly responds: .....].
Are these reviews real or have you faked them?
All of the reviews and star ratings have come from people that have purchased tickets from us. We are very proud of the service and products that we provide, but obviously we aren't perfect and sometimes things go wrong. Once we have addressed any problems that a customer has had, we will process the original review (although we reserve the right to fix minor typos like ticketitaly).
If a review contains offensive language, abuse or personal insults, we'll publish the stars but omit the text.

Coronavirus in Italy

Due to Coronavirus many venues and events are applying strict entry conditions. These will vary by venue but common examples are:

  • In compliance with the Ministerial Order of April 28th 2022 on new measures concerning personal respiratory protection equipment, from the 1st of May until  the 15th of June 2022:
    Cultural sites: the use of a face mask is recommended during visits to cultural sites.
    Performances: FFP2 type equipment must be worn in the case of performances open to the public and taking place indoors in theatres, museums and concert halls, cinemas, entertainment and live music venues and other similar premises.
  • Hands (or gloves) must be cleaned with a disinfectant gel on entry.
  • Your temperature (which will be measured on entry) must not be above 37.5°C.
  • Visitors must maintain a social distance of 1.8m at all times.
  • There may be a maximum visitor limit in place - in some cases this may lead to delays

Any conditions may be changed without notice as Italian regulations are updated.

If you are denied entrance because of failure to meet entry conditions, no refunds will be available.
