These are the most extraordinary mosaics that exist. They cover the floors of the 14 room ancient mansion that has been excavated. Don't miss this place.

Beautiful mosaics in the ruins of a large Roman palace. Nicely laid out. Was really amazed by the extent and beauty of the mosaics

You will marvel at the mosaic tiles preserved at this ancient place. How lucky humanity was that they were buried for so many millennia under mud and they are on display for us now. Such a great place to visit.

The floor mosaics are well preserved and extensive, providing accurate chronicle and depiction of Roman luxury lifestyle. The surrounding area is beautiful and worth spending time exploring the small villages.

When we first started our walk through the villa, I wasn't that amazed; but as we continued on, I was blown away by the magnitude of these still in-tact mosaics. It's pretty crazy.

The mosaics at the Villa Romana del Casale are out of this world! It is a must when in the vicinity of Piazza Armerina.

The best collection of Roman Mosaics in the world. Incredibly well preserved. Can be very crowded and very hot. Probably best to get a guide but there are audioguides which are quite adequate. Large groups can be rather annoying as their guides drown out everything...More
