I've never written a review on Tripadvisor before but after visiting Domus Romana, Lucca today I felt compelled to as I was so impressed the service we received there.
My mother and I popped in on a rather rainy day in September and were greeted by a lovely woman called Simone, we paid the small price of 3 Euros to watch an 8 minute documentary that contextualized the museum and the excavation. After the video Simone spent over an hour talking us through the excavation site, her English was brilliant and she was able to answer all of our questions.
If we had not had Simone doing such a fantastic job of bringing the history to life then I think that the small Museum would be less interesting and text-heavy. Therefore, I would suggest popping in before your visit to see if this could be arranged. I understand that another lady who works with Simone speaks very good French so this my suit your needs better.
We really enjoyed the Museum and 3 Euros was an incredible price to pay for over an hour and a guided tour that really brought the Roman city to life.
