Domus Aurea wheelchair accessible Rome tours holidays

The Domus Aurea wheelchair accessible Rome tours was an imposing building built by the Emperor Nero after the great fire in Rome in 64 AD.

Nero was not the first to ask himself the problem of creating an official residence for the emperor.

It was a political necessity, even more than a vanity or a passion for luxury.

In Rome came foreign monarchs, allies or vassals, many of them accustomed to the lifestyle of Eastern and Hellenistic monarchs.

These princely models were ideologically inspired by the project.

It included pavilions surrounded by greenery populated by rural delights, to promote that communion between man and nature.

It was said, in fact, that Nero had managed to bring the countryside into the city and that his beasts evoked the paradises of the Persian kings.

Imperial Rome

In the early years of his reign, Nero had built the Domus Transitoria, destined to connect the imperial possessions of the Palatine Hill with the Horti Maecenatis.

During the terrible fire of 64 AD, the house burned down completely ( some remains were found under the Domus Flavia ).

As a result Nero built the largest of the imperial residences, the Domus Aurea.

Domus Aurea

The Domus Aurea wheelchair accessible Rome tours splendid decorative motifs of the vaults were copied by famous artists of the time.

Such as Raphael, Pinturicchio and Ghirlandaio who drew inspiration from the paintings and stuccoes made by Nero.

After Nero death, the mansion was stripped of its precious coatings.

The Terme di Tito, the Temple of Venus in Rome and the Colosseum were built on the land where the odomodom stood.

In forty years the Domus Aurea was totally buried under new buildings.

Of the Domus Aurea wheelchair accessible Rome tours, today there is only one building nucleus consisting of a hundred rooms set on an octagonal plan.

The remains of the imposing complex have been subjected to long restoration and consolidation works to repair the damage caused by humidity and the roots of the trees.

Domus Aurea Re-Open

One of the most exciting moments inside the Domus Aurea wheelchair accessible Rome tours, is certainly the augmented reality reconstruction that is possible to live thanks to the viewers arranged inside the main hall.

In the past it corresponded to the hall that overlooked the external courtyard: a place that would be hard to imagine open and green.

Undergrowth all that remains is naturally filled with rocks and large boulders and the addition of columns and arches supporting the overlying thermal baths had already distorted the composition.

Pre booked Visits

The visit allow us to enter history.

Looking around us, while the walls are transformed and colored with gaudy colors, moving towards the terrace with a view of the city, already enormous at the time, is really suggestive.

Almost at the end of the virtual walk, turn back and see with your own eyes the grandeur of that structure and its wealth is really exciting.

Perhaps only in this way can we understand how much we have lost over time and how much we would still have to discover under our feet.
