Domus Aurea Closed? Open?

A rogueclassicism reader writes to ask whether the Domus Aurea has reopened yet and whether reservations to visit can be made. I do know the DA closed last December when flooding intervened, but I can’t find any mention of it reopening. Anyone know? Please answer in the comments.

  1. It’s closed. They used to arrange walks through in which they discussed the restorations they’re doing — they were very short walks (about 20 minutes) — and both times I tried to do it they lost my reservation and wouldn’t let me in. And, they said that the walk didn’t include the octagonal room. I think, however, that they’ve even given that up. Haven’t heard a word about the place in at least a year.

  2. Was still closed in late February when I was there, and they didn’t know when they would open again… =(
    House of Livia on the Palatine closed for same reasons…
