House Of Fortune Museum Reviews & Ratings
This was a small but interesting underground place to visit for 30 minutes or so. There is an audio guide as well as signage in English. The lighting could have been a bit brighter I think to really appreciate the layout of the house. It's such a shame to understand that such fabulous Roman riches were there and yet were just ripped out or simply covered up to build office blocks etc all over the city. We don't realise how important things are until they are gone.
The cost was 3.50 euro each. For the price you get what you pay for. There's a little bit to see and some good informational details within the Fortune House. There are a few good murals to see too but by no means will it blow your mind. Most of the remains are quite degraded. The informational video 2/5.
Well worth a visit. Well laid out, very informative
Loved this place. The guide was helpful and her english certainly good enough to complement the descriptive boards that give plenty of information. An intimate view of real Roman life.
Nice little gallery, very cheap
