THE DOMUS AUREA

The Domus Aurea (“Golden House”, in Latin) was a vast palace built by the Emperor Nero in the heart of ancient Rome after the great fire in 64 AD which destroyed a large part of the city.

The 300-room structure, now mostly underground, takes its name from the gold leaf that once covered many of its walls.
