First of all, thanks to the landslide in the 12th Century, the mosaics lay beneath 10 metres of mud for 700 years. Thus protected them from the damaging effects of air wind and rain.

Then, in the 1950’s excavation works brought the mosaics back to life.

After the visit, time will be allocated for lunch. Moreover, your driver will advise depending on your requirements.
