We thought we'd pop along to this site not expecting very much but were really pleasantly surprised. As sites go this one must be one of the very best for the quality of mosaics on offer. Huge corridors of mosaics depicting fantastic hunting scenes, athletics and all things roman. Don't expect to get a good picture or video - the... More

A lovely walk through the roman villa which is still very well kept . I appreaciated a guard to brought to my attention that an attendant was washing the floor and the mosaic would be depicted better in the photos . Lovely mosaics showing the journey from africa of animals like elephants and tigers. Olympic dancers . Animals depicted around... More

I went along expecting not a lot but I have to say I was bowled over by the mosaics and reconstruction. Really good. Had to pay 2 euros for parking with no shade. There were toilets- 50 cents (out of loo roll for a while) Refreshment stalls were next to the carpark as were the obligatory stalls selling hats and... More

A must see for anyone who's interested in the ancient history - a really well preserved and carefully presented archaeological site where you can easily imagine how a noble man & his family lived some 2000 yrs ago. The unique, beautiful and colorful mosaics are simply stunning.

Quite simply breathtakingly well preserved Roman mosaics. Extensive areas with good viewing platforms across the site allow you to see some of the best complete Roman mosaics in the world, Some look less than 100 years old let alone millennia. €10 each entrance fee per adult plus parking at the site was €1 per hour, pay attendant on exit.

This villa was created by a Roman emperor as his hunting lodge and you can tell by the mosaics on the floor of the lodge. The mosaics depict the capture and hunting of animals. Worth a trip if you are in central Sicily.

This is a site that shouldn't be missed. Although it is 1.5 hours outside of Catania, it's a great escape from the city. For all archaeology or art history lovers this is one of the most impressive sites of Roman mosaics. Not to be missed!

I have read about this place in my art history textbook and seen pictures online, to be able to see this in the flesh was a dream come true! If you are a fan of ancient art (specifically Roman mosaics), then you'll absolutely adore this! This villa has been around since around the time of Diocletian's Tetrarchy (late 200s/early 300s...

Te mosaics are very impressive and there are so many in great condition. Walking through you start to imagine how amazing this villa must have looked in its day. The mosaics are very well preserved and the walkways they have built to view them are very well designed.
