Guided tours of the Domus of Tito Macro

Domus di Tito Macro, Aquileia
Thanks to the efforts by the Aquileia Foundation, the ancient Roman metropolis unveils one of its most evocative places: the Domus of Tito Macro, one of the largest Roman residences among those discovered in Northern Italy. 1700 square meters tell us about life in a house in the ancient city. The mansion extended between two paved streets within one of the southern blocks. With the guided tour we will take you to discover the entrance hall, the tablinum, the kitchen, the beauty of the mosaic floors of the wealthy residence.

In collaboration with the National Deaf Organization of the FVG, it is possible to use, upon request, a free mediation service in LIS (Italian Sign Language). Reservations can be made up to 48 hours before the service by contacting the relevant Info Point. With an area of 1,700 square meters, the Domus di Tito Macro is one of the largest residences of the Roman era in Northern Italy. The house extends for about 77 meters in length and 25 in width at the widest point, between two cobbled streets of the city, within one of the southern blocks of Roman Aquileia.

It is believed that it was the home of Tito Macro, a wealthy inhabitant of Aquileia, on the basis of the discovery of a stone weight with an iron handle bearing the inscription T. MACR. Recent excavations have made it possible to reconstruct the plan of the entire domus in the phase between the end of the first century BC. and the first decades of the 1st century AD.
