Spring at the Domus Aurea

After the rains, very heavy and prolonged this year, spring has returned to the Domus Aurea. The conservators and archaeologists can go back to taking their break between 12 and 1 in the garden in front of the monument, warming up before going back inside. At this time of year, the difference in temperature and humidity between inside and outside is very noticeable. You could say that it is still winter inside.
