Well it's nice there. Impressive sarcophagus. That said it would be nice if the place have had written information in English. If it was there we didn't find it.

Very well preserved mosaics - roman from 4th century and christian from at least 7th century. Unlike ancient frescoes, the mosaics have preserved their vivid colours. Truly beautiful! And pay attention to stunning details (like on first photo attached). Place is so quiet and easily...More

Tucked away out of the city centre on Nomentana this small mausoleum is a haven of peace. The mosaics are charmingly complete and the general ambience peaceful. lights for the interior are 0.40 euros and don't last long so take change. Pay a visit too...More
