After meeting near the Colosseum, we will explore the Colosseum and the Roman Forum before climbing Palatine Hill, the very site were Rome was founded, in a small group of up to 12 people. We will walk along the Via Sacra, the main street of ancient Rome and reach the heart of the ancient capital, where the main religious and political buildings were erected — some of which still standing — including the Senate and the Temple of the Vestals, where Rome’s never-ending fire was tended by virgin priestesses, ensuring Rome’s glory.

Your guide will then lead you into the Golden House to explore Nero’s palace.
Using 3D glasses provided during the tour, you will experience the famous Room of the Golden Vault as it was when it was built. You will also see the exterior of the Golden House and gain a detailed idea of what the palace was like as well as see ancient Rome from its luxurious terrace.

During your visit, you will be in a group of up to 24 people and will be led by the official archaeologists of the Domus Aurea who will provide you with information on the frescoed corridors and rooms. We will visit the Octagonal Room, the Cryptoporticus, the Achilles on Skyros Room, the Nympheum of Polyphemus and much more. You will enter the famous Golden Vault Room with 3D glasses that will allow you to have an all-round experience of Nero’s stunning power and wealth.

Your tour will conclude at the entrance to the Nero's House.
