“AHAHAHA. THIS IS A TRICK”
Review of Domus Romana

Domus Romana
Ranked #35 of 147 things to do in Lucca
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 November 2012

Roman what? this is a clear fake, the cellars of a renaissance baroque palace transformed into a Roman house, little parts of walls in a constant presence of cement. Good to be a restaurant and we would not miss it. As a museum, it really lacks everything. Especially from the Roman point of view. Bitterly disappointing. English on leaflets is almost funny.

Vogliamo sottolineare che i reperti storici visibili nel sito archeologico della Domus Romana di Lucca sono stati portati alla luce sotto la stretta sorveglianza della Sovrintendenza dei Beni Archeologici della regione Toscana che gli ha considerati di notevole valore e interesse storico per la città di Lucca.
Ad oggi, nel Museo della Domus Romana Lucca, non è invece possibile vedere gli oggetti storici rinvenuti durante gli scavi, perchè ci sono dei tempi burocratici dettati da leggi nazionali che ancora non ci consentono di esporli, ecco perchè attualmente sono state fatte delle riproduzioni dei suddetti oggetti per potere dare al visitatore l'opportunità di capire l'importanza del ritrovamento.
Pertanto riteniamo inopportuno il commento di questo visitatore, che senza dubbio non è documentato sulle leggi italiane. Inoltre , in un altra recessione si è permesso di paragonare” Piazza anfiteatro di Lucca ad un vecchia signora abbandonata alla fermata dell’autobus” quando migliaia di visitatori rimangono affascinati dalle caratteristiche di questa piazza.
Pertanto chiediamo di ben voler accettare la nostra richiesta consentendoci di continuare a promuovere il nostro sito e far conoscere Lucca Romana a visitatori maggiormente interessati alla storia.
Riteniamo che questa nostra puntualizzazione possa essere utile chiarimento anche alla recensione del 26 agosto 2012 “D'effetto, ma poca sostanza.”
Certi di un vostro consenso Vi ringraziamo. La Direzione.

we found Domus Romana (latin for "Roman Home") as we walked out of Palazzo Pfanner (another attractive place to visit in Lucca). We were surprised to see it, as it opened less than 4 weeks ago. The archeological excavations at the bottom of this house brought to the light -about 3 m below the current street level- the foundations of an ancient Roman home. You see pieces of walls, parts of a sculpture representing a boy with 2 dolphins, the underground ancient floor heating, etc. They also have an 8 minute film (Italian with English subtitles) over Lucca in Roman times. They also give you a metal copy of a Roman sestertium (a coin), copy of one of the coins found int his cellar. The site is not spectacular, but it is cosy, neat, intimate, and the owner is very helpful. Entrance is 3 EUR (5 EUR if you want the souvenir coin). If this interests you, you'll find the excavations inside the church of San Giovanni in Lucca much richer and extended over a larger area.
