Through Eternity Tours is one of the very few companies offering participants special access to this architectural treasure. Just twice a week at appointed times each day, Through Eternity takes a very fortunate few on a 3 part tour through the underground palace. But this is far from an ordinary tour; the present becomes the past as participants put on 3D glasses and through virtual animation magically relive the splendor of these incredible ruins. Rooms once again are overlaid with gold and studded with precious stones, elaborate gardens and fountains and even the fragmentary frescoes are entirely recreated in their past splendor and vivid colors. Start in a huge portico with columns,…
