Reopen Tiberius Imperial Palace on Palatine Hill

Recommended Posts

Good to see that things are slowly starting to open up. In this case, the site of emperor Tiberius' palace on the Palantine Hill will reopen after 40 years.


The Domus Tiberiana, one of the main imperial palaces on Rome's Palatine Hill, will reopen to the public in the second half of 2021, after more than 40 years.






Interestingly, this structure is probably not Tiberius' palace. 


The earliest palace foundation here, however, appears to go back only to Nero, who no doubt had to rebuild the palace after the Fire, and perhaps took the opportunity to make it larger. The Palace of Tiberius, whatever transformations and expansions it underwent, would have been the principal Roman imperial residence for Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero in the early part of his reign.




Summary: Despite the lockdowns, it is good to see that renovations and excavations continue.
