We've toured more complete Roman villas in Sicily, but not with this setting...the tip of a peninsula into a 1000 foot deep, receding ice-age lake, the largest lake in Italy. We entered the site through the town of Sirmione, past one of a dozen or more Medieval Scaligeri castles/forts. The museum and archaeological documentation was for most part quite complete with multi-lingual labels and large posters with detailed explanations. Note that this wasn't always the case, with some labels only in Italian. Roaming the ruins was a delight, with walks and signs in both English and Italian. As the old saw says, location, location, location. This villa was owned by a pretty rich Roman dude.
