Located in central Sicily, apparently in the middle of nowhere, is the stunning Villa Romana where, only a few decades ago, some of the best extant Roman mosaics in the world were discovered. The villa is vast, and the mosaics which cover almost every floor,...More

Visit here predominantly for the mosaics which are plentiful and some are truly massive. The corridor of the great hunt is spectacular and at 350 square metres is absolutely huge! Don't miss the "bikini girls". Entry is 10 euros and car parking 3 euros. We...More

This was a very interesting site to visit. The mosaics are amazing. It was quite crowded with tour groups when we were there which took away from the experience, but still well worth the time to visit.

It is not difficult to imagine this amazing villa (palace?) in the Roman period. The mosaics are quite breathtaking. The food bar area is surprisingly downmarket - they even tried to charge for the use of the bathrooms!

This was probably the best archeological sight we have ever visited. Very good signage, viewing areas and presentation. As well, the overall area seems to be serene and pretty and probably worth staying a night or two if you have the flexibility.

A very well laid out site with beautiful roman mosaics in fabulous condition . The mosaics are generally in covered areas with plenty of English descriptions . One of the very best sites we have visited .

I don't think there is a limit on numbers on the site. The cost is 10 euros per adult bought at the ticket office - no need to book ahead unless in peak season possibly
