Domus dei Tappeti di Pietra (Ancient Home of the Stone Carpets)

Domus dei Tappeti di Pietra (Ancient Home of the Stone Carpets) Review

This archaeological site was uncovered in 1993 during digging for an underground parking garage near the 18th-century church of Santa Eufemia. Below ground level (10 feet down) lie the remains of a Byzantine palace dating from the 5th and 6th centuries AD. Its beautiful and well-preserved network of floor mosaics displays elaborately-designed patterns, creating the effect of luxurious carpets.
