Well worth adding to your list of sights in Ravenna - look downwards rather than upwards! These mosaics are a relatively new discovery ( only a couple of decades ago) and found by chance. There are 14 "rooms" belonging to a Byzantine house dating back...More

I stumbled upon this place looking for a dirrerent church. It is an archeological site that explains the sinking of Ravenna and treasures still being found!

This is certainly important as one of the most recent discoveries in Italy from the 6th century. I absolutely get that. However you can walk the 14 rooms and 3 courtyards in about 5 mins - 10 if you’re really milking the 4 euro entry...More

It’s a kind of new discovery, an excavation that found like a house from the roman bizantino time. The mosaics are really beautiful and superb! I was lucky to have someone explaining for a group exactly when I arrived there. A master peace, don’t miss...More

A nice view of floor mosaics recovered from a Byzantine palace. However not worth the 4 euro price at the time of our visit in my opinion. Probably something for specialists

These floors were only excavated a few years ago so they don't even appear in some guidebooks! But if you are a connoisseur of Roman art, these are quite wonderful. You enter through a rather scruffy little church into a small paydesk area and gift...More

It was included in my ticket of the TAMO during the Notte D'Oro, and it was quite interesting. It was a major discovery in the history of mosaics. I recommend going.

This is a great place to visit to admire the old mosaic floor from the Roman times. Should not take more than 10 mins to visit.
