This site gives you an astonishing glimpse into the life and times of a Roman Governor, his family and household. It’s a bit like the scene in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe where you open up a closet door expecting to see a...More

Visited the place today with friends. The mosaics inside are excellent and there are close to 100 different ones.

Fantastic view if these historic mosaics. Amazed in how they put these together with such detail and color. Easy to walk from one area to another. Made a point to see the bikini girls and the butt girl. This is a sight that you actually...More

This is a must see in Sicily. Our tour group arrived early so were not hindered by the crowds. The whole place is amazing but the mosaics were the best we have seen. Our private guide's explanation was excellent. Without her, we would not have...More

As most of the reviews say, this place is amazing.. It was definitely, for me, the highlight of nearly two weeks in Sicily. However, be warned that it is very popular, so arrive early, or late in the afternoon or be prepared for crowds. We...More

We had visited Villa Romana 17 years earlier. The mosaics had remained in my memory from that time so I was pleased to make a return visit. If anything, the experience has improved as there are now proper walkways high above the mosaics which give...More

Very interesting, mosaics told the story of life in the Roman Times from their trips to Africa capturing wild animals for the Gladiators to fight through to Bikini clad women competing in games and Children chariot racing

built about 300 AD near the junction of a river & a major road probably for a regional governor or member of the senate since it had 60 rooms (including state rooms). It was lightly raining but actually as we walked across original mosaics outside,...More

I have little doubt that these mosaics are amongst the finest in the world. The large area is almost completely covered and there are walkways from which one looks down on the mosaics. Not to be missed.

You do not need a reservation and the ticketing office at the villa is entirely professional so I don not anticipate any long queues or waiting time. Every main town in Sicily has a tourist office and that you can look up on... More

We, parents and two older teenage sons, will be in Sicily for the first time for several days next month, with a car (through Autoeurope). Though we know we could spend months and still not see and absorb everything, we are unfortunately limited to really only 4 full days. But we are ambitious! In Sicily, we are looking forward to spending time in smaller towns/seeing the countryside this time, rather than visiting the larger cities like Palermo, Siracusa or Catania. Our current thinking is...More

The Carnivale is in Sciacca Feb 17 to 19. You should change your itinerary so you can go to the Carnivale at least 1 day...it is an event not to be missed...especially for your teenagers. It is family fun with beautiful floats. We went last year and planned our trip this year to go back and see it again

Enna, Piazza Armerina and Caltagirone on July 24th 2016 (13 Replies)
We are staying this summer for three nights in Agrigento. On sunday 24th of July we are planning a day trip by rental car to visit Enna, the Villa Romana del Casale and Caltagirone. I know there is the Festa di San Giacomo in Caltagirone that day. So I was wondering if it will be possible to find a parking place in Caltagirone. My plan is to visit first Enna, then the Villa Romana and finally Caltagirone. Where I can find save parking in Enna and Caltagirone? Or is it better to reverse the...More

You will receive great guidance from Sicily destination expert, Vagabonda....my 2 cents (having visited Sicily in 2014 for 15 days) is that driving from Agrigento to Enna, then Villa R. Casale, then to Caltagirone AND then drive back to Agrigento in the evening is way too much. To me, it is not a feasible plan....you are underestimating travel time in Sicily, plus time needed to visit these destinations... as well as the challenges of driving at night. I would reconsider.
