The surgeon's house an the archaeological sector

Rimini - Centro storico

After 2000 years, the archaeological site of the Surgeon’s Domus has opened to the public under an enormous crystal glass covering. A little Pompeii in the city centre, which has become famous in the world owing to its unique archaeological finds. Here archaeologists have found one of the richest surgical and pharmaceutical equipment of the ancient times, now kept in the nearby Museo della Città. Further excavations have also brought to light another part of the ancient Ariminum, that of the domus dating back to the late Imperial period (V - VI century A.D.) with its polychromatic mosaics and that of the late Medieval remains. In addition, in the City Museum are hosted the works of the fourteenth-century Rimini school and many other treasures of art.
