“Great floors”

Domus dei Tappeti di Pietra
Ranked #8 of 84 things to do in Ravenna
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 September 2017

This is a series of floors from a villa. They are mainly geometric and look wonderful. Spend some time looking at them and the flaws in the design start to appear. This gives it a real human feel, you could almost tell where different workmen were doing their thing, the quality across a piece would vary subtly. Check this one out!

Some beautiful floor mosaics worth checking out especially the one that included figures in a dance.

Extraordinarily well preserved mosaics from a Roman domus from the fifth-sixth centuries. Images are fascinating: they are not only pagan, they have curious contradictions. Geometric patterns are mostly what the floors are about but the impact is still stunning.

Great place to escape heat. Under a Church. Don't pay full single ticket price, but get the 3 attractions for 7 Euros (single 4Euro).

It's not long, but good mosaics and view of a rich Roman villa split in between by a road. Only the floors remain.

5 min for pictures and you're done, if a mosaic aficionado you'll stay there longer.

The entrance fee is €4. We had the place almost to ourselves. We walked around it in about 15 minutes. No leaflet given to us with information on what we were about to see. Raised walkways with great lighting. Stunning mosaic floors. Somehow not seeing them in their original location, for me anyhow, lost some of their magic. Some reproduction pieces on display.
