Diving to Find Roman Emperor Caligula’s Fabled ‘Floating Palace’
Divers may have located one of Caligula’s “floating palaces.”
Italy’s Lake Nemi contains a vessel that may be as long as 400 feet and 2,000 years old. If it is indeed one of notorious Roman Emperor’s boats, it will be the world’s oldest luxury cruise ship ever discovered.
Two smaller pleasure ships of Caligula’s have been found in the past in Lake Nemi, but were largely destroyed in bombing during World War II.
