We took a public bus(not tour) to Villa Romana de Casale from Palermo. It's about a 2 hour ride. No issue with the bus. When we arrived in the town of Piazza Armerina we took a cab to the Villa(10 Euros). The driver spoke English...More

I was really impressed by the whole place and its size. It is fascinating to find out how the owner and his family lived or what the purpose of each room was. And to see the mosaics, so many of them and so well preserved...More

We stayed in Piazza Armerina for one night during our 17 day trip to Sicily so that we could visit Villa Romana del Casale. The exquisite mosaics have to be seen to be believed. The villa is divided into several rooms and all the mosaics...More

We visited this incredible jewel this past July. I was speechless once I saw the amount of incredible mosaic work throughout the villa. We have visited Pompeii and thought that was amazing, but Villa Romana was so much better. It's much smaller in scale and...More

This site of a huge Roman villa has wonderfully preserved mosaics with very good explanations. It's a bit tricky to find as the signage in Piazza Amerina is not good, but it's absolutely worth it to make the trip if you are in the area.

Having driven two hours to get here we were not disappointed. It only costs 10 euros entrance and it's worth every cent. The site is still undergoing improvements, but what a transformation. We could see all the mosaics in an ordered way on raised walkways,...More

Having seen one or two 'bits' of mosaic over the years, nothing prepared for the scale of what this place offered. Room after room of outstanding mosaic, very well presented. In fact the whole place really did give the impression of what the place might...More

I don't know definitely but all the rooms are under cover and are viewed from a walkway so, unless there is preservation work ongoing, there would be no reason to close anything. It's definitely worth going - the mosaics are... More
