This was one of the best Roman sites I have ever seen. An extensive villa with well preserved mosaics.

This a Roman Villa from the late imperial period which has been excavated. Very well done. The sights to see are clearly the well preserved mosaics. The signs provide a lot of information. A guided tour would be even more informative. Well worth the time and modest price. I found it really interesting to learn how Romans (admittedly wealthy ones)... More

This really is unmissable. For those of you who've been to places like Fishbourne in Sussex, England to see a few bits of faded mosaic, wait till you see this. Right from the beginning you think it's marvellous but it just keeps getting better. Nicely laid out with good viewing spots. We went in September, so out of the main... More

The mosaics here are amazing in their preservation and variety. Some of the explanatory panels are interesting too - once you've worked out what the literal translations from Italian into English mean. If travelling by public transport you can get from Piazza Armerina on a regular, if infrequent, shuttle bus - but where it leaves from is almost a state... More

Incredible mosaics, the ones that were NOT protected, ie you just walked on ! Would have been a protected tourist attraction in the UK. Can not express in words just how remarkable this place is.

This is the best preserved and extensive piece of Roman history that we have ever seen. The extent of the restoration and the quality of the remains are quite extraordinary. The mosaics alone are worth a visit, but put the whole building into context and it emerges as an exceptional example of Roman occupation. Work is still going on, such... More

We stopped by on our way from Syracuse to Agrigento. The drive took about 2 hours due to lots of detours, but it was definitely worth it. The mosaics are out of this world and are in phenomenal shape. It is well worth going out of your way to see this amazing site.

This was a surprise to us. The mosaics are among the most beautifully preserved that we have ever seen. The Villa goes on and on. It is beautiful and well worth the visit.

We'd seen the Villa on tv and were not disappointed. At only 10€ it was extremely good value. It is a much bigger site than we expected with far more mosaics. Words fail me! This must have been such a grand villa! Who must have walked on those floors? The remains of the frescos were also special too and unexpected.... More

Villa Romana was the reason for our visit to Piazza Armerina. To think of the work that went into these mosaics is mind boggling! Well worth a visit. There a small plaques as you go from room to room to explain the scenes depicted on the walls and floor. It does get tiring reading all these and sadly no audible... More
