Casa Romana di Vespaia Polla, Spoleto

3.8
#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 structure is small but nice and represents a cross-section on housing in Roman times, inside it's easy to imagine the habits of the time, only comment I exhibited contemporary art sculptures inside, we recommend the purchase of SPOLETO CARD which allows you to visit different museums at a cost only.

  • During the week-long holiday in Umbria, Spoleto visited with my husband and a tourist destination that we did not miss was the Roman "Domus". The rooms are very well preserved mosaic floors unearthed almost intact and easily visible to the visitor. You can imagine the life that took place inside thanks to the rebuilding video, I think it's a visit not to be missed not only for fans of Roman history but for everyone.

  • 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
  • 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.

  • Outstanding in its genre, really beautiful mosaics that decorate each room. Worth a visit for anyone away from Spoleto.

  • Small room but very well preserved. Especially the mosaic floors with bi-coloured cards are interesting. There are modern works well.
