I was not sure what to expect... but when I walked in and saw the mosaics I knew that I was seeing an amazing treasure. I was overwelmed with the beauty and brilliance of these 1900 year old mosaics. I have never seen so many square feet of perserved Roman mosaics in one place. I enjoyed looking at the detail... More

We were really impressed about the beauty of the remains. It is astonishing to experience what the romans were able to make 2.000 years ago. It is really worth the drive to the place !! Do not miss !!

The villa is an impressive and humbling reminder that life in the past was as elegant as today. The villa possesses the most magnifient ancient and well perserved mosiac tile floors anywhere on earth based upon the research and information presented. The tiles depict the Greek and Roman hunts throughout the Roman empire and how the animals were shipped to... More

Don't miss this. Amazingly preserved mosaics which make you marvel at how these Romans lived. Go early as there are tons of tours, and they overtake the place.

Wonderful opportunity to see these remarkable mosaics, superbly preserved. Well organised site, and quite easy to park. Unmissable! Also, good value (adult entry fee is a few pounds, children free).

We were highly looking forward to seeing the mosacis, but so little was open (the place is in the process of being refurbished) I wouldn't waste the time to go there.
