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

We loved seeing this unique find, but did not enjoy the modern art stuck right dab in the middle. It ruins the ruins!

This museum was less than 100 yards from our apartment and we walked past it daily, but hadn't visited. Due to the museum pass I have mentioned in other reviews, we went on this trip and were happy that we did. It's a very interesting...More

If you are in Spoleto, spend the 3 euros to see this. Just for the mosaic floors which look like tapestry, and the for the understanding of how clever Romans were at collecting water.

Was so looking forward to seeing this Roman house and it would have been delightful except for the highly distracting amateur artwork that polluted every single space! It was not possible to look anywhere without having your view destroyed by what looked like luggage trollies...More

This is an interesting start to explore the Roman history i the area, but there really isn't much to see. But it's cheap, and cool inside, and has a nice enough gift shop.

Such a disappointment to see art displayed in this Roman villa. Paintings which were not even in keeping with the villa leaning on walls throughout the villa and totally distracting us from the beautiful mosaics. Is this a great example of a Roman villa or...More

Fascinating, though a little confusing in places. This is the remains of a Roman house from 1st century. I find many Roman museums repetitive, but this one is well worth a visit.

Fascinating, if confusing at time, remains of a Roman house under street level. Could do with better information signage and Spoleto's archaeological museum is far more informative. Possibly not recommended for claustrophobics - certainly not when parties of Italian schoolchildren are running around. (Which is...More
