The first palace built by the ancient Roman Emperor Nero reopened to the public after ten years of restoration work, as shown in footage filmed in Rome on Monday.
The Domus Transitoria — or Transit House — was built on the Palatine Hill almost 2,000 years ago. It was opulently decorated with colourful marble, frescoes and fountains.
«There were not many activities here, because this place was... Еще dedicated to leisure and pleasure. The emperor loved to present himself to his guests in spectacular environments,» said archeologist Martina Almonte.
The palace was destroyed by the Great Fire of Rome and then replaced by the Domus Aurea (Golden Palace).
Using virtual reality headsets, visitors will be able now to admire the original glory of Nero's original residence.
