This is an amazing (large) collection of mosaics well preserved in an outdoor structure. There are reasonable English descriptions on most displays and it well worth the time. Don't buy the book at the car park ( after being told nothing is in English) as...More

From the period 300-400 BC depicting daily life in an aristocratic Roman hunting villa. Fantastically preserved scenes of daily life and the capture of wild African animals for the Roman circus. Definitely worth a visit--takes 90 minutes. 10 euro entrance fee.

A very picturesque hill town with narrow winding streets, helpful locals, baroque buildings etc.... one way system better to park in a suitable place and walk round. We chose to stay outside the centre on the surrounding hills.

People come to Piazza Armerina to visit nearby Villa Romana del Casale and don't realize that the town is absolutely gorgeous and well worth taking the time to explore. Start in Piazza Garibaldi in the old section and head up, up, up on the narrow...More

Great old town with cute little houses and amazing views. Very old buildings with interesting history. The Palio held every year from the 13 till the 14 of August is a highlight.

I think most people will treat Piazza Romana just as a base for visiting the Villa Romana Del Casale mosaics and the nearby ancient Greek ruins of Morgantina near Aidone. But the town is worth a little exploration due to its attractive position clinging to...More
