If you are in Sicily you have to go here, it is unforgettable. You will need at least a half a day here.

We were able to see Mt. Etna as we began our journey through the farmlands to this jewel. It is amazing that this was discovered and they have done such a great job bringing it back to life. This would have been the Villa to visit and be a guest at. The mosaics are stunning. The workmanship is beautiful. An... More

Aside from the cold we found, it was well organised and the villa was entirely reconstructed and every room and piece of mosaic was explained! At times though it was dark and some explanations were very Hard to read! Maybe it can be made more interactive with videos and educational games. The visit took us one hour but it definitely...

The mosaics are all well preserved and you will be astonished and felt amazed by the craftsmanship back then. You will have to walk for around 20-25 mins from entrance to villa. Entrance fee was EUR10.

Amazing. Go earlier in day as gets dark/cold early and everything is outside. Became too dark to read signs by 4 and no lights turned on although there were lights present. Park closes at 4 in winter although website said 6.

We had the good fortune to visit here on a rainy days when ours was the only bus in the parking lot. Our guided tour lasted 2 hours. The mosaics here are extensive and many are observed from relatively narrow elevated walkways which must be very busy in high season. Definitely worth traveling out of your way to see them.

We were in Sicily for our 30th anniversary. I read the little guide book and we drove (many detours on the roads) to the area where the Villa Roman del Casale was to be.... It is the most awesome treasure in Sicily and yet it was a 'treasure hunt' to find it.. Bad /NO signage to speak of... However, it... More

This incredible site is hard to find and takes a while to get to, but it is definitely worth it for the largest group of Roman mosaics in the world. Hidden under a mud slide until the 1950s, the mosaics and the huge villa's foundation have been marvelously preserved. This was a country retreat of one of the co-emperors and... More

This place is MUST for those who are interested in history and ancient art. Mosaics are amazing - each room was decorated differently and You can see what was important for that period royalty (games, hunt, sports, gods, myths), how aristocrats and slaves were dressed and even see what purpose room was for. We've visited vila in the middle of... More

There are a few places you see on a trip that really make the journey worthwhile. This is definitely one of those places. The mosaics are stunning. For me to try to describe what will see if you come here cannot do it justice. The site is very well maintained and laid out. There are guides to hire on the... More
