SO worth it!
Dec 2019
floor mosaics, for a change- and very beautiful ones. gives you a sense of what the private houses of the rich looked like while their churches were decorated in golden splendor. very much worth a visit.

More mosaics!
Sep 2019
Yes, more mosaics - but this time genuinely (western) Roman rather than Byzantine or Ostrogothic. Discovered 20 years ago, these mosaics, mostly in situ, were clearly the floor covering for an extensive villa of a wealthy roman. They're close to the main tourist attractions so you should certainly have a look. Having said that, if you've seen lots of Roman floor mosaics before they won't astound you the way Ravenna's later ceiling mosaics will. You probably won't remember this attraction in ten years the way you will others in Ravenna. Certainly true in my case - it was only when I'd paid my four Euros and stood looking at the floors that I remembered that I had indeed been here ten years previously. Ah, the joys of (impending) old age!

Again mosaics
Aug 2019
There are very nice mosaics, but this time they are floor mosaics and not on the ceiling or walls. They are kept in very condition.

Nice visit @ mosaic
Sep 2019 • Couples
We enjoyed the visit. The original church could be reached with a wheel chair ramp and they also have a wheelchair lift to reach the mosaic level.

Al signs & texts are in Italian. But the audio guide is available in English.

Very nice views on the restaurated Floors

Enjoyed viewing the mosaic floors
Jul 2019 • Couples
For a 4 euro entry fee (no reduction for seniors) you can walk over mosaic floors that were discovered in the 1990's. You enter through an old church - church of Santa Eufemia. They are nicely preserved.

Beautifully presented Mosaic Floors
May 2019 • Couples
So, someone set out to excavate an underground car park. Imagine their surprise when layers and layers of mosaics were uncovered. You have to go through a small old church and then down a metal staircase., to reach the mosaics. The "room" in which they are housed is buttressed with reinforced concrete and you walk above the mosaics on raised walkways.
All very carefully thought out and executed.

Fantastic mosaics
Oct 2018 • Friends
You enter through a small and unremarkable church. Then for a fee you can descend to an amazing series of mosaics, mainly set into the floor.

I believe they were discovered when someone was trying to build a car park on the site.

The walkways over the mosaics are cleverly built so that you are able to get close without damaging them. I would have liked more information in English, but it isn't their fault I don't speak Italian!

Underground Marvelous Mosaics!
Sep 2018 • Friends
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 to 4th and 5th centuries AD. The floor mosaics are all different. The floor featuring the dance of the four spirits are extremely fine. A contrast to the religious focus of the church mosaics. Ticket price - 4 euros. Wheelchair lift available to avoid short flight of stairs.

What a surprise the 'stone carpets' are mosaic floors UNDER the church
Sep 2018 • Couples
To find this we followed a map that took us from one of the main shopping streets, down a side street around a corner to an unimposing church alongside a restaurant but we were in for a surprise, so were they when they originally found these floors. For a modest entry fee of 4 euros, another Unesco heritage site opened up for us.
As we were passing it would have been a shame to have missed these roman mosaics as they cast a contrast to the church ones we had been visiting,

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!
