Domus del Mito

The Roman domus "del Mito" in Sant'Angelo in Vado can be visited until August 31st (5-7 p.m), it's the ruins of a beautiful house with mosaics floors.
Here are some photos, I'll probably go there on Tuesday (if it doesn't rain as it did las Wednesday when I planned to go....) and post more (that is if I can take pictures inside!).
