Incredible site with amazingly preserved mosaics throughout. It's a bit overwhelming in scope, so be prepared to spend a least a couple of hours. The superstructure that has been installed over the ruins, to protect it, gives a pretty good impression of what the villa...More

In November there were no lines. Good to visit also in the rain since it is covered. I have sought out Roman and Greek ruins throughout Europe and the Middle East and can say the mosaics are amount the best in the world. The wealth...More
