We were on holiday and this town has beautiful spirit. It is a perfect place to stay to explore Sicily.

Very busy with lots of coach parties which they attempt to stagger so everyone gets a look at the mosaic floors. The villa is large and has several levels. The rooms give a real sense of what life was like. Our guide was very informative...More

Nice little town near the Roman villa with useful shops and restaurants. There is a carrfour if you are self catering which is a superstore

An amazingly well-preserved Imperial villa dating from 320-350 AD, which was built as a hunting lodge by a Roman patrician, and is home to some of the best preserved Roman mosaics. The spectacular mosaics show subjects such as Homeric escapades, mythological scenes and of course...More

Totally loved our visit here just wish we had more rime to spend here. Allow plenty of time to walk the lanes to take in so many of the gorgeous buildings. Great many restaurants and cafes to partake the local foods.

A lovely wee town with some cute narrow lanes and old buildings plus a fabulous Duomo (loved the blue and white interior). Just a shame that the locals treat the roads like a race track. Pedestrians need to be constantly alert for cars racing past...More

After a difficult trip by car through the countryside (distances in Sicily do seem to have the same meaning as elsewhere), we got to Piazza Armerina late, so we missed the Villa del Casale, which was a pity. We wandered then through the town, which...More

This Roman villa was the highlight of a week exploring Sicily. There are fifty or sixty rooms of stunningly well-preserved mosaics. A landslide preserved them from destruction (a mini Pompeii). I have never witnessed a Roman mosaics on such a scale. It's a UNESCSO site.
