“Don't miss this!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Beautiful mosaics - If you have any interest in Roman history, you will enjoy this. The villa is laid out in the classic Roman style and much of it is in excellent condition. We were even able to see original Roman pipes running under the buiding. We had an excellent guide who obviously had a passion for his subject.

“Stunning Site, Improved Presentation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This Roman Emperors home has tile floors unlike any other. We had a fabulous guide set up by Tradizione Turismo who had stories for everything. What a blast.

“Please dont miss it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

It sounds kind of boring to many people, but it is really a fascinating place. Very large and only recently reopened. Unfortunately not well maintained - so much garbage all over the place and the structure has birds roosting and dropping their.. er..."droppings" on these fabulous remnants of a bygone age. But for all that - really a must see in the middle of nowhere. Before or after have lunch at nearby Trattoria La Ruota. Terrific and friendly and spotless kitchen. Get the Melanzane. By the way - as with so many things in Italy - I do not believe that the exhibits are wheelchair accessible.

“Villa Romana Del Casale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

It is worth the trip to see the Roman floor mosaics. They are beautiful! Drove into town afterwards and ate at Amici Miei. The antipasto plate was very good and the caponata excellent! Don't miss visiting the Cathedral.
