This Roman Villa was covered by soil washing down from a nearby mountain, plus preserving it from vandalism and damage. It is very large and quite amazing. You may have seen Roman mosaics before, but these are the stars. Much more interesting mosaics then Pompeii....More

Was told to go to this villa by in-laws as I would be amazed by it. It is magnificent and so well preserved after 2000 years. Sicily has may treasures and this is one of them.

It's not the best organized, but it's definitely an incredible place to visit. We really enjoyed many of the rooms. If you have the time, add this excursion into the middle of Sicily!

I don't think there is a limit on numbers on the site. The cost is 10 euros per adult bought at the ticket office - no need to book ahead unless in peak season possibly
