This Villa is situated a bit far from the usual tourist paths in Sicily, but its beauty is definitely worth a visit! I was overwhelmed by the dimensions of the whole villa complex and the elegance of its architecture typical for the Roman Empire of that period. The mosaics are really amazing, depicting the myths and life scenes, with many... More

An informative tour through a villa, showing the Roman life of yore. Beautiful grounds, eye-opening placards, and great energy. On the way out, a band was playing typical Italian music. Just completed the scene. Go and spend some time reliving the way it used to be.

We found this fabulous archeological site by accident while driving thru Sicilia in February 2003. We had the site was almost entirely to ourselves. The floors were covered with beautiful mosaics depicting a variety of different scenes as well as simple geometric designs.

The sprawling floors (over 3ooo sq. meters) of this otherwise-destroyed Roman home are an artistic treasure showing scenes of Roman life in colorful and artful detail. Well worth a couple of hours.

All reviews rave about Villa Romana and they are all totally justified. It was not easy to get to the site and the weather was cold and wet. We made the effort and were absolutely blown away by the quality and amount of mosaics. These mosaics are recognised by UNESCO as of world heritage significance and the so are. Cannot... More

We visited Villa Romana on a very cold wet day and pretty much had this amazing place to ourselves. Imagine an uninterrupted view of room after room of the most fabulous mosaics. Each and every aspect of the villa is captivating. We spent a couple of hours just wandering and marveling at the scenes - the bikini girls, the fishing... More

I had no idea this was here until some folks in Agrigento told us about it. What an amazing place with incredible roman mosaics. Only takes an hour or so to see it, but if you like antiquities it is absolutely worth it.

The most extensive set of mosaics still in situ, wonderful setting just in the heart of Sicily. A must-see place for any traveler or archaeology lover.

Probably the most impressive roman mosaics. The word Villa does wrong impression of the place which is rather a great summer residence closer to Palace.
