  • The mosaics are exceptional and in incredible quantities the state of conservation is remarkable. The tour is trzs well organized. Price of 10 euros justifies . On the other hand the cb drive did not work .. bizarre.. At the entrance of the toilets are flechees and paid ... Alirs that passes the ticketing of free toilets are available ...

  • The villa is beautiful, very well organized and what about the mosaics... leave you breathless for their beauty. Very good restorers. If I really have to make a criticism ... I'd let the groups in, contingenting the entrances, I know... a group every 15 minutes. Avoid the brawl of the whole together passionately.

  • Such a great historical place! I would say it is “must see” when you visit Sicily. These mosaic floors are really a treasure. They are still in a very good condition and it is a masterpiece from ancient times. You could understand how was the lifestyle so many centuries ago. This villa is surrounded by a nice park and you can relax in the shadow if it is a hot sunny day.
  • Lots of beautiful mosaics. Unfortunately despite bright day exhibitions were dark and far away. Most mosaic are like covered by dust what make them even harder to look at. In the end it's the absolutely only place of it's kind. Worth 10 EUR. Recommended to be visited off season.
  • Nice place for spending one or two hours. Everywhere is a map so it is easy to orient there. Don't go to the paid toilets on ghe left , there free ones right before entrance - on the right in souvenir/beverages/snack facility.
  • Fabulous mosaics. Well worth 10€ entrance price. Cheap snacks available in the parking area. Nice ice cream too. Very welcome on a very hot afternoon.
  • Must see place! 2000 years old amazing roman mozaic very well preserved across the large villa. True piece of art, mathematics and devoted hard work. Each scene is very good labeled so by reading the signs one can get the whole story. Still better hire a guide, because there are a lot more to see. The place is very well suited for wheelchair!
