The mosaics are non religious and reflect life in the Roman empire like nowhere else. The huge mosaic showing the capture of animals in Africa and their being loaded onto ships for transport to Italy is a stunner. Even shows a worker (slave) being disciplined...More

A very large Roman villa that has been painstakingly excavated. There are hundreds of fascinating Mosaics. Not to be missed. It was very full.

This is definitely worth a visit. You will be rewarded with many beautiful mosaics many of which are in amazing pristine condition. Stunning. My children enjoyed it too.

Since this site was covered by 10+ feet of soil before being discovered in the late 1920's, much of the villa is preserved. Really incredible. Well done on excavation and preservation. Not to be missed!

May was an awful time to visit. The place was so crowded with tourist groups and school tours that we couldn't even get in. When we did get in, the line around the palace did not move and made for a very irritating trip. It...More

Stopped here after the Roman mosaics. Walk up to the upper section. Great views of the valley from in front of one of the many churches, maybe the main church. Lots of churches here.
