Domus Aurea

Domus Aurea, also known as the Golden House of Nero, is a villa that was built by the infamous emperor in 68 AD. Nero decided to build the immaculate gold-leafed villa in the heart of Ancient Rome after the fire of 64 AD had cleared many of the aristocratic houses from Palatine Hill. In addition to the gold leaf décor, it also featured stuccoed ceilings encrusted with precious gems and walls covered in extensive frescoes. After being dismantled by Nero’s successors Domus Aurea was rediscovered in the 15th century and restoration of the ruins began in the 20th century.

  • Tour the interior of Domus Aurea where you will find an amazing statue of a Muse at its centre. Housed inside of a small room the statue is lit by sunlight in the morning, giving it a ghostly appearance.
  • Explore the atmospheric underground chambers of the Domus Aurea, a creepy tour through halls and rooms that seem to be filled with ghosts from Ancient Rome.
  • Walk beneath the domed salon that has a hole at its centre, which those in Ancient Rome believed, followed the movement of the sun, rotating with the passing of the day.

Domus Aurea is centrally located among many of the historical sites of Rome so it is easy to get to using public transportation or even walking. This attraction is included in most of the historic walking tours that go through the area, and there are a number of companies that provide this service. Guided tours are the best way to appreciate the ruins, as experts in the history of the eternal city will give detailed descriptions of each structure. The Termini railway station is located just a short walk from Domus Aurea and is the closest stop on the train.
