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.

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

This is a fascinating look into a Roman house. The mosaic floors and partial frescoes are in incredible shape considering how old it is. Really amazing.
