It takes a bit of a walk to get to the remains, and I got caught in a shower. However, the above ground remains are well preserved, and the mosaique floor in the shed is simple superb.

Just park the car on side of road and walk about 10-15 minutes to this historic site. Beautiful surrounding green countryside.

1700 hundred year old remains of what was a huge villa. It amazes me whenever I encounter anything Roman (what did they ever do for us?!). Immaculately preserved mosaic here too, complete with swastika patterning! It's a bit of a walk from the road and...More
