This is an absolute must see in Sicily - the most stunning 4th C Roman villa with mosaic floors which take your breath away. One 60 m floor with tigers, elephants and camels - like the film set of Gladiator! It is hard to believe...More

This villa is well worth a visit as the mosaic flooring is spectacular and the best in the world. It's not too far by car from Siracusa or Agrigento. There was a thunderstorm when we visited in August but most of the site is covered...More

Definitely a must see on your Sicilian journey, especially if you are a Roman and Greek history buff. The mosaics are so well preserved - the long hunting hall has a beautifully preserved mosaic telling a rich story. They have done a nice job with...More
