“Very interesting archaeological site”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

In the basement of the church, archaelogical excavations reveal different levels of mosaics and foundations of the Early Middle Age. A splendid work of restoration.

“Nice floor mosaics”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This place contains some mosaic floors, in some parts very well preserved, and two mosaics on the wall.
Not first place to visit in Ravenna, but worth of a visit

“Small, Simple, Sublime”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

This is a simple museum. At first, you'll wonder if you should have bothered. One room? Don't miss it! The examples of mosaic floors are excellent, and the two on the wall provide a unique opportunity to view these close-up. Also, notice the places where you can look through the walkway below to see the floor below. It's a special place, and they have done a wonderful job with this museum.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Original mosaics on the floor, well restored and carefully displayed. There are many rooms, though no walls between them. It is not a big place. I recommend to walk slowly and observe the details of every pattern, and then look straight and see all of them together. The view is wonderful!

“Beautiful floor mosaics worth a visit”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

These mosaics are very different from the brilliantly-colored, sparkling ones elsewhere in Ravenna. The colors here are muted and the tiles are stone. Although most of the interior walls are gone, there are about a dozen "rooms" each with a different mosaic floor. Some are intricate geometric patterns, others more naturalistic. The center room has a beautiful mosaic of the Four Seasons, three of which survive. You can't walk on the floors, but there are walkways and bridges so that you can see the floors beneath. There also are some interesting stone mosaics set into the walls. These mosaics are well worth a look and it's not expensive. The entrance is through the Church of Sant' Eufemia.
