  • Bella villa, definitely worth visiting for its mosaics, some really well preserved, others which had been lost ...

  • Secure a personal guide and the visit will be well worth the drive. Shows the life style and living quarters of wealthy Romans.  more »
  • Of the most beautiful mosaic I've ever seen. The condition is simply breathtaking. Or in Ravenna or in Pompeii you get to see that. The only thing, not eat there because the quality is not enough. Best in the city.

  • Amazing mosaics which have been preserved excellently! Great detail and lots of information to read. Best mosaics I have seen anywhere and I have travelled to many places as I love Roman history. Extremely hot in mid day heat so bring lots of water!
  • Wow! Amazing villa with the largest mosaic of it's type in the world, extremely well preserved and the way they designed the structure where you stand to see it really allows you to enjoy it. Go to their website and print the map at least, as they don't give you one. While walking, try to avoid going into the narrow hallways when there is a tourist tour, as it can get very crowded, wait and look at other things until it clears up.
  • Very interesting Roman villa with amazing mosaics on floor. A guide would be more informative, but the signs along the exhibits are very informative. Definitely a must see in Sicily.
  • A must see in Sicily. Very beautiful mosaic with a lot of details. Take an hour or two to walk around. Download a map with short descriptions per chamber before you go.
  • Amazingly well preserved Roman mosaics, unlike anything I've seen elsewhere before. Very well presented in a covered building, with good information available on the boards. A good audio guide is also available for €6, which I don't think says a huge amount you can't also read, but you may find it more accessible. There's also wheelchair access to most of the site, but perhaps not quite everywhere.
