Highlights / General details
After the fire in 64 CE, Emperor Nero had a new residence built; it had walls sheathed by fine varieties of marble and vaults decorated with gold and precious stones, so it earned the name of Domus Aurea (Golden House). The enormous complex included boundless vineyards, pastures and woods, an artificial lake, treasures looted from the cities of the Orient, and precious ornaments, such as the statue of the Emperor in robes of the Sun God. After the death of Nero, his successors tried to bury every trace of the Palace and the lavish fresco and stucco decorations of the Domus Aurea remained hidden until the Renaissance.
