An underground Roman House dating back to the 1st century AD & believed to be owned by Vespasia Polla , the mother of the Emperor Vespasian . Worth a visit for the floor mosaics .

So much better than we expected, with complete mosaic floors and lots of interesting finds. The people at the desk were generous with their time and knowledge.

The town of Spoleto has so many hidden treasures to find and this is one of them. The town is very close and walkable (there are detailed directions for tourist to follow). The Roman house is nicely restored and maintained. The intricate tile floors are...More
