I've been to Rome many times and seen many antiquities, so for me this was a wonderful addition to my accumulated experiences. I booked an English language tour direct with the CoopCulture site. My weekday tour did not include the VR component. My tour was during the exhibition called La Domus Aurea e l'Egitto. The tour included material about the influence and background of Ptolemaic Egypt on the Domus Aurea and Nero's reign. That information was interesting for me because it built on my existing knowledge of Nero. The visit was enhanced with some imperial Roman artifacts that were moved into the site for the exhibit. Fortunately I did plenty of research in advance, because the guided tour neglected to provide an in depth description of the site itself. For example, the tour did not point out that the wall decorations are the fourth style of Imperial Roman painting, which was more complex and detailed than the previous four styles of Imperial Roman wall frescoes. While past tourists such as Casanova and Marquis de Sade left their signatures scratched into the walls, my tour did not point out these curiosities from the past. I do not recall the tour identifying the names of the rooms, or explaining any of the myths illustrated in the frescoes; for example The Room of Achilles and Sciro, or the mosaic of Ulysses and Polyphemus. Yet, these omissions weren't actually great errors for me; because of my research in advance and because my accumulated experiences include ad infinitum explanations of such myths. The visit did have the excitement and thrill of visiting ancient underground Rome. The exhibition called La Domus Aurea e l'Egitto provided much revisionist theory about Nero's efforts to enfranchise the population beyond the Roman elite, and beyond his demonization in The Lives of the Twelve Caesars, by Suetonius. In retrospect, I highly recommend the the visit and the tour, but I also recommend that you do your own research in advance.
