"See the DOMUS AUREA. Nero..." Rome Favorite Tip by drolkar

Rome General: 946 reviews and 1,121 photos

Favorite thing: See the <font color=red><b>DOMUS AUREA</font></b>. Nero fiddled while Rome burned (A.D. 64)... and then he rebuilt his villa ! After Nero's suicide in A.D. 68, subsequent Roman emperors tried to cover up all remaining traces of their mad predecessor by building on top of his creation: hence the Baths of Titus and Trajan, the Temple of Venus and Rome...

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
