Made a detour to visit here on our way to Syracuse, and was completely taken aback. This place is incredible and awe inspiring. The mosaics are sublime and so intact. This is a must see, the best attraction on the whole of Sicily.

We visited this ancient site midmorning and mid-week in October as part of a tour group. The 35 people in our group as well as the crowd that was already there made it quite busy even for a non-peak time. But I am so glad we visited this interesting and well preserved piece of ancient history, it was well worth... More

It is next to impossible to overpraise this site as it is the best preserved Roman villa that I have ever seen or am likely to see. I will come back to Sicily again just to see this again. They try to sell it as a possible country villa for an emperor but I have seen much larger ruins elsewhere... More

The villa is a unique look into the past about how the privileged lived in Roman times. The appeal of the villa are the mosaics located on the floors and halls of the villa. Many of these old mosaics are in good or excellent condition. The variety of topics depicted in the mosaics is surprising. We couldn’t but wonder how... More

I love all things Roman and the mosaics at this villa blew me away. It must be the largest collection of good quality Roman mosaic floors in the world. Fascinating place and such a variety of floors. Do not be deterred by crowds...there are walkways above all the floors and you can get a clear view of them by looking... More

These well preserved mosaics are exquisite - colourful, detailed and well executed. They tell stories, depict activities and decorate floors with geometric designs. They give you an insight into the dress, the lifestyle and activities of the 3-4th century AD. A real feast for the eyes. Must not be missed The architecture is also interesting and, on the whole, well... More

This villa is amazing. Great mosaics and structures with platforms for viewing that are superb. Some explanations in English were appreciated. Definitely off the beaten track, but in beautiful area. We stopped there on our way to Agrigento from Taormina.

We arrived mid day in rainy October and had to shuffle through the many marvelous rooms of mosaic floors with tour buses of others. The Mosaics seem almost medieval in design and costume which is odd because they date to the 4th century, just on the cusp of Christianity.
