Go there! You haven't been in Sicily if you miss these. It's amazing to have a Peek into Roman times. The mosaics clearly show what people looked like in those days. Be Sure to arrive early, you may be ahead of the touring cars with large groups.

Excellent visit today. The interbus from Catania at 1030 took us all the way to villa romana and the 1630 brought us back. The timetable says scavi del casale but this is the villa romana. Pity the bus website is not clearer. Mosaics were stunning

OMG!! The mosaics!! The mosaics!! The building!! The history!! The Romans!! The Normans!! OMG!! Guisi was our BRILLIANT guide. And because it's Italy you do find yourself walking on the archeology sometimes but it really can't be helped. And anyway, they are doing their best. For people who really do know they have treasure but don't really have the funds... More

An impressive view into Roman life. Discovered by accident then uncovered this site in wonderfully preserved and a must see on any trip to Sicily. A UNESCO declared site with good reason A little hard to find and possibly very crowded in high season...but again a must see!! Mosaics and frescos are in beautiful condition without major restoration, just preservation... More

This place is well worth the drive. It is an amazing roman villa, about 30 minutes drive off the A19. Do not buy the guidebook which the touts try and sell - the place is very well labled in several languages. Big free car park. Disabled access.

We were awestruck by this site. The floor mosaics are in unbelievable condition, portraying gods and goddesses, hunting, fishing, everyday life, children's games, and beautiful patterns. It is well-laid out, with walkways above the rooms on the site, and explanatory panels in Italian and English. There are a number of stalls selling fast food, drinks, and tourist items, including explanatory... More

Secure a personal guide and the visit will be well worth the drive. Shows the life style and living quarters of wealthy Romans.

We arrived here on a Sunday, first of the month and found that entrance was free. This villa was not discovered until in the late 19th century because a mud slide had engulfed the place in the 12th century. It is now a World heritage Site. It is a very popular place and becomes very crowded and progress around the... More
