The Domus Aurea in Rome is the site of emperor Nero's grand palace, which was constructed in the open space that resulted after the great fire of 64 AD, when over half of Rome was destroyed.

After more than ten years of restoration and renovation work, this palace was reopened to members of the general public. Rome's Domus Aurea is often referred to as 'Nero's Golden House' because it was once covered in pure gold. When the Domus Aurea was originally constructed, many locals in Rome complained that it was actually larger than the rest of the city.

The buried Domus Aurea palace was rediscovered during the 15th century and Raphael was one of the artists that was lowered into the ruins to copy the historic paintings and carvings.

Open: daily - 09:00 to 19:45, closed Tuesday
Admission: charge
