We enjoyed our visit to the Roman remains of Milreu. The gentleman selling tickets was unhelpful and unfriendly when I asked if there was a cafe & didn't suggest the 2 cafes down the road, nor the drinks dispenser just inside the entrance! The mosaics...More

Near the vilage d'Estoi you can visit the roman ruins of an ancient roman villa; nice mosaic with a relief of swimming fishes is to admire; the site archaeologique is to explore in the nature, for a culture activity.

Arrived just under half an hour before closing with the site empty. The two staff were not happy and behaved poorly. They clearly were set on an early exit. But we went in regardless of their peevishness. And it was well worth it, even though...More

This is a small Roman villa with not too much now left, but enough to see how it was laid out and with some mosaics left to see. We found it interesting and worth the €2 entrance fee.

The mosaics are amazing, probably should have got a guide book though. There isn't a huge amount of explanation of what you can see. Time your trip carefully if travelling by public transport, it really does only take an hour and you can end up...More

In the remains of the villa there are a lot of different floor mosaics that are still in good condition that can be seen. Good explanation of what the different rooms was used as.

A worthwhile trip out of Faro, particularly for people interested in roman history. If one doesn't have a car it is possible to reach Milreu Ruins by bus (it takes about 20 minutes). The entrance fee cost 2 Euros to visit the Ruins of very...More
