Domus Tiberiana can be visited again after half a century!

The vast archaeological area in central Rome is a unique place in the world. The Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, Domus Aurea, and Arch of Constantine are also part of the area. On the Palatine Hill we find an important ancient excavation area such as the Domus of Tiberias, which was at the same time a huge palace complex, the seat of the imperial court, the office and residence of the Roman emperors and the court elite.

Although named after Tiberius, according to records, the laying of the foundations can still be linked to Nero. Outside of peak times, it had a mixed fate, and was even used to make lime in the 10th century. Valuable excavations in this area did not begin until the end of the 15th century.

However, it must have been an imposing area and building, especially since the word “palace” or palace was born from the term Palatine Hill.

So we are talking about the first palace in the world, which has been closed since the 1970s, waiting for better times, when it will finally be able to present itself to the people of today.

For example, the new visitor center turned out to be majestic, containing a lot of interesting archaeological and historical finds. In addition to clay statues and vessels, we can also come across stories of mysterious and mysterious ceremonies, while following in the footsteps of the emperors. This is another reason to visit the Eternal City again!
