The Roman emperor Nero was not known for his restraint, and the Golden House (Domus Aurea) reflects his decadent taste and lifestyle. Built after Rome’s great fire in AD 64, the remains of this sumptuous pleasure palace, covering nearly one-third of the ancient city of Rome—dwarfing the nearby Colosseum—are now open to the public.

The exhibition titled “Raphael and the invention of the grotesque” is a good chance to visit a small part of the immense Domus Aurea - the house of the famous emperor Nero - recently restored and reopened to the public. During an immersive exhibition, made with visual projections, you will discover what was Rome and what happened just before the construction of Colisseum. At the same time, you will learn about the Renaissance, when the forgotten roman paintings of the Domus Aurea, hidden underground for centuries, were suddenly rediscovered and copied by the best painters.

Domus Aurea Golden House of an Emperor Private Tour

Domus Aurea Golden House of an Emperor Private Tour

star-5

The Domus Aurea was part of the project that Nero had devised to convert and transform Rome into a new city "Necropolis" following the Hellenistic model in the manner of Alexandria, this is, a city with an orthogonal plane with squares and wide rectilinear streets. With this same ideology, 60 years later, Emperor Hadrian built the gigantic Villa Tiburtina 30 km from Rome. The cave was covered with painted figures. Soon the word spread and the young Roman artists lowered themselves down inside the cave to admire the beautiful ancient frescoes. Today the frescoes are faded but were studied during the Renaissance artists such as Michelangelo and Raphael. Raphael even took inspiration from the frescoes of the Domus Aurea for the making of the Vatican Loggia. Thanks to the discovery of these paintings, the artistic term "grotesque" was created. The construction of the Domus Aurea also known as the Golden House has been considered the most extravagant construction in the history of Rome.

Colosseum represents the glory of the Roman Empire. The gladiators' discipline was very strict and it had a lot to do with sex restrictions and conduct. Emperors could decide of their lives and had complete supremacy on their freedom. The Palatine is also part of this tour.

Rome Appia Antica by Bike - The Queen of Roads

Rome Appia Antica by Bike - The Queen of Roads

5 km southwest from the city center, this 3-hour bike tour takes you back in the time of Ancient Rome. The road is one of the most famous and oldest sites, called "Regina Viarum" - The Queen of Roads, named after Claudius Appius Caecus who built it in 312 BC. Made of cobblestones and specifically built to transport supplies and soldiers to strategic points trough the empire. Much of the original way has been preserved to this day. It was also a huge burial site lined with tombs due to law that forbade burying the dead within the sacred belt of the city. We'll admire sites such as the Tomb of Scipio Family, the Tomb of Cecilia Metella, cross trough a park and enjoy the view on the Nympheum of Egeria and see the cenotaph of Annia Regilla, a second century Roman Lady whose assassination is still obscure. This tour brings back to the very origin of Rome where you will experience intensively the slow flow of the time that devours everything. A fresh bottle of water will be given to you!
