Some emperors, let's say the ones considered to be the worst: Caligola and Nero are famous also for their luxurious life stiles.Both of them had built for themselves amazing party boats.
We have many informations about 2 boats realized for emperor Caligola in the first century AD. that have been discovered in the last century in the lake of Nemi south of Rome.
Unfortunately they have been destroyed by fire during Second World War.
They were huge, decorated with splendid mosaic and marble floors.
There had party halls, private apartments, bath houses and heated floors.
The photos represent an ideal reconstruction of Caligola party boats.
Nero instead used party boats in the lake he had created in the valley of the coliseum as part of his famous Golden House.
