Nice in the evening
Jul 2019 • Couples
When the evening comes and the lights go on this place looks really nice. You need to wait until after dark though.

Breathtaking example of Roman Domus
Aug 2018 • Solo
An archaeological museum area open to the public, over 700 square meters that reveal 2000 years of the city’s history. The most important discovery concerns the imperial age house (today called domus del “chirurgo” from the profession of the last owner) that housed a taberna medica, as revealed by the finding of an extraordinary surgical kit with over 150 instruments, exhibited in the nearby Museo della Città (City Museum)

Roman mosaics In situ
Jan 2019 • Couples
It costs €5 for concessions and €7 full price to enter to see the ,mosaics close up, but you can also see them through the large windows from the pavement.
Yet another example of the importance of Domini in Roman times

Many houses as time went
Dec 2018 • Family
This place shows you how one house can change so many times during the centuries and maybe provoke your imagination. What you will see are reconstructed basements and parts of the walls which had in different time periods different use.

I strongly recommend to read the texts on the panels which are placed in some corners of the museum.

If you want to see the surgeon’s instruments you need to go to the Museum of Rimini.

Roman remains
Oct 2018 • Friends
During rebuilding work, these incredible mosaics were unearthed. They turned out to be the surgeon's house from Roman Rimini and were part of an opulent villa with a hypocaust (underground heating system). Today it has been protected by being housed inside a museum building. Normally there is an admission fee of 7 euros but on the Sunday I was there it was apparently free to go in. It really was superb - and amazing to think that it lay undiscovered for so long.

Amazing Roman find
Aug 2018 • Family
This was a highlight of Rimini for me. The mosaics were the best I had ever seen from this time. Beautiful and detailed. So well preserved.

Don’t forget to also visit the museum with the 150 medical instruments they found here. Amazing story!

Beautiful mosaics
Apr 2018 • Family
Makes you realize more than ever that in Italy you're ALWAYS walking on ancient history,even if invisible. I agree with other reviews that a guide would be a great help to explain and enlarge on what you're seeing,otherwise the eye just seems to slide over the mosaics,beautiful as they are. We've visited other places where the students of the local Liceo Classico have "adopted" the site and can give further insight and information.It's a matter of civic pride and also a chance to use whatever modern language they have studied. Definitely a win-win situation for them and also for interested tourists.

Make sure it is opened

Travelled on a Saturday afternoon to this site to find it closed. Due to the glass surrounding it is difficult to view inside due to the reflections.
