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

This one of the hidden treasures that Italy uses the tourist to discover. If you go, visit the domus first, then go to the Museum MAR (inside Loggetta Lombardesca) in order to know more about the history and findings of this ancient roman villa. Found by chance in a recent past, this archaeological site is full of ancient mosaics you... More

We got the reduced price pass (Tamo museum, this domus and a private chapel). The excavated site shows the different mosaics of a domus from Roman times. My favourite one was the Dance of the Seasons, with a musician playing the syrinx. If you are interested in Roman art, it's a must.

This below-ground museum entered from a church is an unusual attraction which has not been open very long. It is the ground floor of a Roman house - only discovered a few years ago - which is full of mosaic "carpets". Nicely laid out, with walkways, it will not take you long to visit and is worth the modest entrance... More

Interesting to see how life might have been centuries ago. The audio guide goes into great speculative detail but may not be all that compelling for many.

We found this small, nondescript Church (Santa Eufemia) while on our way to a more well-known site. The mosaic "carpet" is in a very large underground room. There is a wakway from which you can view these magnificent Byzantine mosaics of the V-VI century AD. Of special interest and beauty are those mosaics decorated with geometric shapes, floral patterns, and... More

Had a ticket for free entry with our cruise ship shuttle service. We had already visited the Cripta Rasponi Giardini and the TAMO museum so we were not really expecting anything different to what we had seen! How wrong we were!! Entry was through a church and then little souvenir shop. We walked down the stairs (they did have a... More
