Private 2-Hour Domus Aurea Tour neighborhood of the Colosseum
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.

Stop At: Via della Domus Aurea, 1, 00184 Rome Italy
We will visit Octagonal Room and the five surrounding rooms, the exhibition Raffaello Nella Domus Aurea. L’invenzione delle grotesque is accompanied by remarkable interactive and multimedia devices telling the extraordinary story of the rediscovery of ancient paintings buried in the "caves" of Nero's original Domus Aurea accompany the invention of grotesques.
The exhibition has a dedicated entrance. It consists of a walkway that, from the park of Colle Oppio, creeps among the ruins, touching them, until it reaches the Octagonal Room of the Domus Aurea, passing through one of the original underground galleries of the Baths of Trajan. Thanks to this idea, it is possible to discover the stratifications of history and the beauty of the underground environments of this extraordinary imperial residence. A luminous guideline leads directly to the heart of the Neronian building.
