The best mosaics that I have seen! The whole villa is a dream. Good story about the owner and how they lived in the villa.

Amazing to see such well preserved mosaic from the Roman empire! And in such a vast area. A real treat and very tourist friendly that the place is roofed.

This site was covered in a mud slide in the 12th century which in fact preserved the building from ruin and decay or destruction by enemies. Excavations have unearthed the rooms and mosaics which are still spectacular today. Well worth a visit..

The Italians are hopeless at signposts. This is a unesco world heritage site but the first signposts didn't appear until approximately two miles before we arrived. We had a decent map but even that didn't help. So glad we persisted though. If you make the...More

We saw guides near the entry gate. They were asking visitors if they wanted to join a small tour group. That's how they organize the tours.
