Was so looking forward to seeing this Roman house and it would have been delightful except for the highly distracting amateur artwork that polluted every single space! It was not possible to look anywhere without having your view destroyed by what looked like luggage trollies...More

This Roman House was built early in the first millennium, the Spoleto home (domus) of a person of significant means during the Roman Empire. It was built over in later centuries, but later archaeologically discovered to the degree you see it today. There are good...More

This is an interesting start to explore the Roman history i the area, but there really isn't much to see. But it's cheap, and cool inside, and has a nice enough gift shop.

Fascinating, though a little confusing in places. This is the remains of a Roman house from 1st century. I find many Roman museums repetitive, but this one is well worth a visit.

This is a fascinating look into a Roman house. The mosaic floors and partial frescoes are in incredible shape considering how old it is. Really amazing.

It is incredible to think that this house was built in the heart of Spoleto so many centuries ago. The house has been beautifully "uncovered" and it is possible to imagine a family living there. The explanations are very clear and the property is fascinating....More

We've been here six times just to have the privilege of entering an ancient reminder of the glories of Italy, and the art that infused everyday life then. The mosaic floors are amazingly contemporary, the craftsmanship exquisite, the frescoed walls proof that beauty is a...More
