Nice but I think it is not worth all the way up there. The way is long and exhausting.. and takes a lot of gas. And the price is not very expesive but not as cheap either, I visited much better places with less price. Just saying.

The mosaics are truly breathtaking! There are so many and such unbelievable condition. This was definitely on of the highlights of our trip to Sicily. There is a good size car park and plenty of places to buy a cold drink. We visited on a very hot day so be prepared for a short walk from the car park to... More

These mosaics have to be the most extensive and well presented available to view. Primarily located within a large covered building, their quality is stunning as is the range and detail. Absolutely worth a visit

We went out of our way to go to this UNESCO site. It was not overly crowded when we arrived and there is plenty of car parking. Once again, we were amazed that the romans had the ability to craft such a masterpiece of mosaic art.

After visiting Piazza Armerina which is already a great hidden treasure of Sicily, we went to villa romana del casale. The drive itself from the city to the villa was really nice, beautiful scenery. The villa itself is preserved really well with beautiful stunning mosaic, it must have been such an impressive place at the time I would definitely recommend... More

The villa is beautifully preserved and the facilities and signage excellent. Plenty of touristy gift stalls near the car park with useful tour guides. No need to pay for a guided tour as signage in English is excellent.

A trip to Villa Romana del Casale provides visitors with a unique experience in understanding the life of a Roman Villa. The mosaics, which are extensive and in excellent condition, are exquisite examples of fine art and an incredible feat for any artisan. Each of the pieces of mosaics are clearly labelled (in English) which provides wonderful references of daily... More

For us travelling from Palermo it was 4 hour bus trip each way. However the 2000 year old mosaic flooring was absolutely amazing,superbly preserved, the finest l have ever seen, a unforgettable experience. Please note other than earlier publications, over 65's now pay the full 10 euros entrance fee.

You can only award 5 stars to the villa as it is jaw dropping amazing even though elements could be different. The fact of location in a green valley off the a roads allows you to imagine the original choice of its location. The sleepy staff and relaxed caretaking remind you it is sicily. In UK there would be climate... More
