Rome The Campo de fiori And Colosseum Districts
Northeast of the Colosseum lies the Domus Aurea (GoldenHouse) that once belonged to that great fiddler, Nero.
This palace, still viewable in part, occupied more than a third of the city, a monument to greed. It actually disappeared for centuries. The great painter Raphael worked on its restoration. Don’t expect to see everything as it was, but this is one great, or should we say disgusting, monument to unbridled luxury.
