There is over 3500 square metres of mosaics in quite extraordinary condition built around the 4th century. Most of the areas is under cover. There is a self serve... More

We made quite a detour to visit this attraction,and we were so glad we did.....it was well worth it! The mosaics on display are fascinating and really give an insight into all aspects of Roman life. Highly recommended. Definitely a highlight of our two weeks in Sicily.

This Roman villa in Piazza Amerina is worth to visit. You can see an old villa with all mozaics.Most of the places were covered so that you don't have to walk in the sun.

Incredibly how well the enormous amount of mosaics in different rooms have been preserved. You really get a good feeling about the grandeur of ancient times.

The villa was built 1st-3rd centuries AD but it was the 4th century AD renovations which made it so opulent. Used throughout the ages, eventually it became buried by landslides due to flooding and the villa was forgotten. Ancient mosaics are amazing, villas, temples etc. contained so many and each tile is sometimes no larger than a little fingernail, the... More

We were blown away by these ruins. The mosaics alone were fantastic and the site gives an insight in to how the upper classes lived during the golden age of the Roman Empire. Even though we visited in high season the crowds weren't huge and the tour of the site was extremely pleasant. Well worth the trip.

You must see these works of art to truly appreciate their historical and artistic value. Hire a professional guide to learn all about the villa, how it functioned as a retreat for... More
