By sheer chance, we (that would be 4 of us) stumbled on this wonder of ancient Rome after chatting with a History Researcher in a Park
It is an Underground Tour of a Palace built by Nero and a bunch of pretty good Artisans which...More
A must if you're in Rome. Nero's vast landscaped palace which was discovered by chance as it was completely covered in large amounts of dirt. Still being excavated but amazing tour and use of 3d headset to show you what it looked like in Nero's...More
I teach Roman civilisation and I've wanted to visit the Domus Aurea for a long time. It's not open often and you have to book online in advance (that's easy and works fine). The tour is great. Very informative. Explains the site and makes clear...More
This place is hard to find and unassuming. Rome is generally poor for signposting, but this is a working excavation and over-shaddowed by the neighbouring colosseum. You have go go through the park gates and swing a hard left. For safety only small accompanying groups...More
Nero’s golden palace is a must see ..This was right next to our hotel and opposite the colosseum. The place is only open at weekends, as they are excavating and preserving the finds during the week. We managed to luckily get in at the last...More
The Domus Aurea only allows tours on the weekends, because it is still under active excavation. I booked a week in advance because the tour groups are small and fill up quickly. The tickets HAVE TO BE PRINTED!!!! so don't forget to do that, they...More

Do NOT use google maps to find the entrance. I booked this tour through coopculture and unlike my coliseum ticket with them there was no detailed ticket confirmation. Please use the address listed above, this will take you to a park steps away from the...More
I went onto the website and it was messy and hard to understand and looked like tickets were not available for a while. Then I called the phone number and was able to get onto the tour the next day. We did enjoy the tour... More
I went onto the website and it was messy and hard to understand and looked like tickets were not available for a while. Then I called the phone number and was able to get onto the tour the next day. We did enjoy the tour ... you need to study a little in advance to know what is going on and use your imagination during the tour. I would not recommend it for kids.
