Wonderful floor mosaics

The mosaics are wonderful and well-exhibited, the museum is near San Vitale church, in the historic centre, the set up is in English too.

Extensive collection of late Roman mosaics, which are displayed wonderfully. Raised walkways allow you to walk through the extensive and well-lit rooms. The audioguide is a must, and does a very good job of explaining what you are seeing.

Having spent the last week in Ravenna and seen most of the sights this still surprises and amazes. It has style and beauty. Do go to see it.

Just a bit from the historic center you find these mosaic floor pieces that will take your breath away. Not as flashy in color as the churches, but these Roman works make up for it in intricacy of pattern and size.

Unfortunately not included with either combination ticket, this is still worth visiting. It takes you a few centuries back before most of the famous Ravenna mosaics and these are on the floor rather than the walls and ceiling. Highly impressive in any case.

Ravenna has loads of mosaic ceilings- here we've got a relatively recent find from Ravenna's Roman past- a carpet of fabulous mosaics, stretching across an extensive underground space. The information boards are in Italian, but we managed to glean the processes that archeologists had gone through as they dug through layer upon layer of history- through medieval floors, medieval burial...

This place was hard to find but well worth the trouble. The mosaics are still fresh and beautiful and the layout gives an insight into the life of wealthy people centuries ago. There are beautiful mosaics all over Ravenna and these whilst not as ornate are just as beautiful and preserved.

I heard about the discovery of these in the 90's and they're the reason I first wanted to visit Ravenna! This was the first place we visited on our day trip from Bologna. 3 metres below the Church of St Euphemia in via Barbiani, the carpet stretches for ages, it's wonderful! The audio guide in English was really informative and... More

One of the greatest Late Antique Domus. An example of archaeological excavation and museology project. Excellent restoration of floor mosaics
