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.

The "Newer" church above the ancient site is unspectacular, but you can imagine life in this area during Roman times. I find it fascinating that the street levels have risen so much since ancient times. The site was used for Medieval burials many hundred years after all traces of the older culture was gone, and they went down to or even through the Roman floor level. The site was discovered by a construction backhoe operator digging an underground garage (fat chance now) and the remarkable find came to light. They know that the site continues outward much further, but they cannot tear down buildings on other property for additional uncovering, although some temporary digs were made. Part of our mosaic tour of Ravenna. We started with a list and only actually missed one attraction in three days. Every attraction except one out of town was reached by walking in close proximity to the historic city center. We did not move the car one time, other than to arrive and leave town. Print some papers in advance from the internet and carry them with you to help you understand what you are looking at. Buy a nice photo book to take home and continue your studies.

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.
