The museum houses an excavated mosaic floor from the Roman period, which makes it older than the Byzantine mosaics at San Vitale and other sites. However, you can see better Roman floors elsewhere, so it is worthwhile but not essential.

This exhibit provides an incredible view of actual Roman floor mosaics as they were found. The find did not occur here but is presented exactly as found. It is incredible. The detail of each design and the type of floor suggest a very important owner. Again, it was incredible that it was lost but now on full display. I really... More

These were discovered around 2002 when the city was repairing sewer lines. The display is extensive and is he footprint of a wealthy Roman villa. One must enter a former churchto access the museum. There is a good video at the beginning of the visit.

This was included in our cruise ticket. Interesting to see all the mosaics laid out and to be able to walk (transparent walkways) over the top of them gives you an idea of what it must have been like in Roman times. Well laid out, it wasn't busy when we went

This is a fairly new exhibit of interesting Roman-era mosaics. However, documentation is skimpy. We should have gotten the audioguide. However, the staff was nice. A small gift shop is available, with a restroom.

This site was not very crowded. It is not included in the combo ticket that covers most of Ravenna's mosaics, but the cost is modest, and the site is fascinating. It's a house whose mosaics were just discovered in 1993. The mosaics are contemporary with some of the famous church mosaics in Ravenna, but secular in nature, so the comparison... More

what a surprise - reminded me a bit of the roman buildings in the centre of valencia but so much simpler with just the mosaics there to speak for themselves.... you enter through the church (all wheelchair friendly though I did wonder how often the stair lift got used)..... its a great way to see the layers upon layers of...

We visited this attraction in early October 2013. We loved this display because it was so different from the wall mosaics to be seen in every church in town. We found these to be the best and most interesting as they were only discovered in 1990. The display is excellent. No photos are allowed.

Not many original Roman/Byzantine floors remain extant, and even fewer are open for viewing, which makes both the size and the sheer pictorial complexity of the Domus die Tappeti di Pietra something to behold. Raised walkways lead the visitor on a tour of this ground floor villa, reached through the nave of the church superimposed on the dwelling in later... More
