Incredible site with amazingly preserved mosaics throughout. It's a bit overwhelming in scope, so be prepared to spend a least a couple of hours. The superstructure that has been installed over the ruins, to protect it, gives a pretty good impression of what the villa...More

Extraordinary mosaics relatively well explained in English along the raised walk above the rooms. It is difficult to understand how such an advanced civilization with forward thinking ideas fizzled out.

I don't know definitely but all the rooms are under cover and are viewed from a walkway so, unless there is preservation work ongoing, there would be no reason to close anything. It's definitely worth going - the mosaics are... More
