We've been here six times just to have the privilege of entering an ancient reminder of the glories of Italy, and the art that infused everyday life then. The mosaic floors are amazingly contemporary, the craftsmanship exquisite, the frescoed walls proof that beauty is a...More

The mosaic floors in the Villa are very well restaurated and give a glimpse of the grandour that once must have prevailed here. It's not very large but on the other hand one of the better Villas I've seen.

This partially excavated Roman home might have been used by someone in Caligula’s family, or just by some rich Roman. What remains are some of the ground floor rooms…most with almost intact mosaic floors. Amazingly you can walk on them, just as Romans did 19...More
