This is well worth a visit. Our 18 year old was €5 and our 16 year old was free. Adults are €10. For info, over 65s are full price. We decided to get the audio guides to provide more info and teenagers won't read the information signs. These were €6 each. The mosaics are remarkably well preserved. We spent about... More

We have been fortunate to visit many Roman ruins and for us Villa Romana del Casale rates as highly as Ephesus in Turkey. The villa contains over 3500 sq meters of mosaics and in many of the rooms these mosaics are almost complete, telling rich and complex stories that reveal much about Roman philosophy, religion society and understanding of their...

This is a pretty expensive attraction and not huge but the mosaics are in fantastic condition so if you like that sort of thing its well worth the trip. The shop and restaurant on site are a real rip off so buy outside from the stalls, they sell pretty much everything from ice cream to postcards at half the price.... More

This was a hunting lodge of a very rich roman. The floors are very well preserved . The viewing is on a walkway above the rooms . There are good descriptions in English so a guide is not necessary. This is is a bit of a challenge to find if you are driving from Agrigento

Pompeii and Herculaneum may be better known and much larger but this relatively small site offered by far the most complete and extensive floor mosaics I have ever seen. It's quite the drive to reach and we accidentally drove through the hill town of Piazza Amerina to get there, which proved a little hair raising in our 5 person vehicle,... More

I was on a group tour that did not include going to the Roman Villa. I had heard that I should not miss this, so arranged to get a driver and a few people from the tour joined me. Very happy I went. The mosaics were unbelievable and just went on and on and on, room after room after room... More

As other reviewers have reported this ancient roman villa is tucked in the middle of nowhere and is one of the world's best mosaics, Unbelievably beautiful, well worth the trip

Really interesting and lots to see of the very well preserved site. A bit far away from the big cities but definitely worth a visit if you're passing through.
