Rome in Photographs Slide-Show
In March 2002, I went to Rome for a few days with my family. We explored the Forum Romanum, climbed Palatine Hill, visited the Colosseum, Baths of Caracalla, Circus Maximus and most exciting, Nero’s Golden House! Of course I took lots of pictures, and here they are for you to enjoy! There are over 40 photos, complete with written notes and comments about each.
Unfortunately, there are no photographs of Nero’s Golden House because photography was not allowed (preservation of the remains), but this Domus Aurea website might satisfy your curiosity (although the pictures really don’t do it justice), or if you don’t mind spending a few sestertii you can download Archaeology’s “Guide to the Domus Aurea” (US $3.95).
