Razed to the ground by the Great Fire of Rome, Emperor Nero's original palace opened to the public for the first time Friday after a painstaking 10-year restoration.Nero claimed to be a descendant of Aeneas a legendary hero of the Trojan War, as Homer tells it in the Iliad and was a big fan of Trojan heroics.
