Casa Romana di Vespaia Polla, Spoleto

3.9
#2 of 7 in Museums in Spoleto
Get a sense of how Rome's upper class lived at Casa Romana di Vespaia Polla, an old villa once used by members of the elite. While not large, the site makes for a pleasant tour, as it allows visitors to wander the property freely. Note the high ceilings and large windows, which give each room a bright and open feel. The real attraction, though, lies just beneath your feet: each room features well-preserved mosaic floors made of original tiles, and you can walk across them just as the Romans did.

  • This a nice little space under the town hall. It helps to understand how Romans lived. Beautiful mosaic floors.  more »
  • We were lucky enough to visit it in the absence of parties and loved. The black and white mosaics are very well kept and evocative is the part of collecting water. If there are too many people is not to be missed.

  • Truly a unique discovery. It seems to be catapulted back in time to 2000 years. A strange feeling stepping on mosaic floors of this historic value. Only pity is that from what we've seen there are no further excavations and recovery nay seem to freeze for years. Too bad

  • A very pleasant surprise, authentic house from ancient Roman period. You can get some contemplation time on your own, as it's not crowded. Small, but lovely.
  • Amazing mosaics
  • Because it is very old and then is very beautiful and is also in Spoleto

  • Like all of Spoleto, the organization is excellent and the staff all friendly and helpful. The only thing to improve is the surface signs, since in the escalators is all well sign posted.
