Flyover Zone takes you on a virtual tour of the South Theater in Hadrian's Villa. Located today on private property not open to the public, the South Theater was a gem of Roman art and architecture. Seating over one thousand spectators, it is famous today for its sculptural decoration, which included a series of statues of Apollo and the Muses. Follow Professor Bernard Frischer on this virtual tour to see the standing ruins of the South Theater as well as dramatic aerial panoramas of the villa and the Tiburtine landscape. This tour transports you to 26 stops around the theater. You can either take the express tour and explore the theater by jumping to different stops or take the long tour and listen to the commentary on each stop. This virtual tour also includes a Free Roam feature that allows you to walk around the theater.

The Bulgarini family, which owns the land on which the ruins stand, is pleased to grant this virtual access to the people of the world. They would like you to appreciate the amazing ruins so lovingly preserved by generation after generation of the family for the past four centuries.
