We travelled 2.5 hours to get there, so our expectations were very high. Essentially, it's a restored Roman villa with a bunch of original mosiacs. The mosiacs are very impressive, large and well preserved, but at the end of the day it's much the same...More

The mosaics at Villa Romana del Casale are the highlight. Definitely worth the trip. Better than I have seen anywhere else. Better than Spain, Rome, the empire, and probably better than Libya - but they are now hard to reach for the average tourist. We...More

This place is a bit out of the way, near Enna, but is definitely worth a visit. It houses the ruins of a Roman villa and exquisitely preserved and extensive mosaics throughout (viewed from a high walkway) that depict roman life of the time. Famous...More

This is well worth getting to. Just to even see the structure of the Villa is worth it. It had so many rooms with different functions and the images in the mosaics only help to highlight what these rooms were about. The attention to detail...More

This was our 3rd visit, the first since the improvements to the site, walls constructed to give you a better understanding of how the building looked like and the roofs had the added attraction of keeping you in the shade. Amazing mosaics.

I wasn’t sure whether this Roman villa deserved a detour, but decided to check it out anyway. It was definitely the right decision. As you walk up the hill to the entrance there is a stand with official guides who offer to take you around...More

The Villa Romana del Casale in Piazza Armerina doesn't just have the most spectacular mosaics that you'll ever see. It is also breathtakingly monumental. This is a spectacular site. It makes all the other villas I've seen feel like shacks. Unbelievably spectacular. GO!

The site contains 40 mosaics in several rooms in “original” condition. It’s a relatively easy covered walk. Well worth a stop if you are in the area of Piazza Amerina in Sicily

We didn't have much expectation of this place, other than it was recommended by a friend who said not to miss it. So we took a special overnight stay at Piazza Armerina (whcih for us didn't have much else to recommend it). But the Villa...More

We had a car and drove. I only saw tour coaches in the car park. Nothing that looked like a local bus. Sorry
