The long drive from Pozzallo to Piazza Armerina was definitely worth it. The Villa is very well presented, with walkways overlooking the amazing mosaics found in every room of the house. They are very well preserved and the overall plan of the Villa gives a glimpse into the engineering genius of the ancient Romans. The entrance ticket is EUR10 per... More

The Villa Romana del Casale will show you one of the biggest and best floor mosaics you will be able to find. You should count with many tourists walking the narrow walkways and you will have to spend at least 2 hours to see everything.

This is the biggest roman villa I've seen and the most extensive mosaics. The mosaics are scene after scene of roman life and mythology. They're not as brightly coloured as some I've seen but they're easily the biggest. Drawback? It's off the beaten track - what was worse for us is that, coming from Cefalu, the motorway had been damaged,... More

I didn't really know what to expect here as I knew it was obviously a ruin, and we only originally planned to pop in on our way to the Valley of the Temples, but I have to say I was really impressed and myself and my husband ended up spending ages here. There are numorous information points telling you about... More

This Villa must hold one of the best collection of roman mosaics to be found. Our guide explained everything well and brought it to life. The most memorable being in the ladies gymnasium area- 10 roman girls in bikinis! but there were meny others illustration roman life and many were nearly complete. Well worth the trip, but beware if you... More

Its not only the amazingly large area of well preserved mosaics but their high quality that gives this villa a must see rating if your in Sicily. Situated in a remote sunny spot this villa must have been a beauty especially when you consider its a 2000 year old home. Its still unclear who it was built for but whoever... More

Get there early to avoid the coach tours. There is a big parking area. You must pay for your parking when you buy your ticket to the Villa, otherwise you can't get out. We didn't realise this and held up traffic while trying to work out how to pay at the gate on departure. We ended up pressing the button... More

A little hard to find, but definitely worth the drive and hunt. The mosaics are beautiful and amazing. The presentation is very well done and organized which if you have been you know is not a typical trait in Sicilian tourism....

Set off from Ortigya in our hire car at 0730 and arrived at about 0945. It was well worth the early drive to beat the coach parties. We were not disappointed as some of the mosaics were not only very big but also beautiful due to the skill of the craftsmen and the different sizes of material that they used,... More

Whilst it takes a little while to wind your way through piazza Armerina and get to the villa. The trip and the €10 entry fee plus parking is worth it. The villa has some of the most stunning roman mosaics we have seen and they go on and on throughout the grounds of the villa (which itself is largely non-existent).... More
