Guided Tours

Domus Aurea Experience

A true journey through time, a completely new cognitive and emotional adventure in the panorama of technologies applied to the cultural heritage.

The site of the DomusAurea reopens with innovative multimedia applications to provide a scholarly enhancement of the restoration work. Compared to previous years, the archaeological remains offer a site-specific project of immersive reality and video narrative. This has broadened its public appeal through multimedia installations that make use of the latest technologies, such as videomapping on large surfaces and virtual reality.


The two spectacles presented develop along the itinerary in 12 stages of the guided tour of the DomusAurea:

– Emotional projection on the history of the DomusAurea in the entrance gallery.

– Creation of a virtual reality installation in the Hall with the Gilded Vault.

Visit the DomusAurea as you have never seen it before, immersing yourself in Nero’s palace as it was in the 1st century CE.See recreations of the original interiors, the portico, the sumptuous rooms, the garden, and the view of the Palatine.

The scholarly valorisation project is promoted by the Parco archeologico del Colosseo with Electa.

Each Friday, Saturday and Sunday, educational tour with virtual reality of the restoration of the DomusAurea €14.00 + booking fee. Reduced 10,00 € + booking fee (under 12 years)
