3rd-4th century AD Roman villa. 120 million tiles painstakingly restored. Every room has mosaics. Buried in mud in the 1100's. Excavated in the 1900's. It is helpful if you have a local guide. We had such a guide for 2 hours which made the site much more understandable and enjoyable. Best to go early to help avoid the crowds. Incredible... More

We were STUNNED and OVERWHELMED by the mosaics here. These are the finest Roman mosaics in the world. Intricate, Detailed, High Art, Vibrant, These mosaics were perfectly preserved under a mudslide. Try to keep absorbing thru the Great Hunt. After you leave, relax and rest to let your mind digest what you just saw.

I saw the ancient villa some times years ago but this is the first time I've seen it after the restructuring and it is really amazing. We were very lucky because we found a guide that for few euros explained us all the rooms.

If you are in Sicily go and visit you will not be disappointed. The mosaics are beautiful and filled with action, drama and humour.

I recommend that you walk through the villa twice, the first time to admire the incredible mosaics and the second to get a better sense of the layout and scale of the place, and to examine the details of the mosaics more closely. If you are not with a guided tour, you will find the signage throughout the villa adequate... More

We have been traveling during the summer for many years and Villa Romana del Casale really stands out in our memories as being quite spectacular. We see pieces of ancient mosaics other places but nothing of this breadth or beauty. I would like to return but it is far from home.

The mosaics are very impressive and the fact that they are so well preserved and intact after 1700 years is amazing. There are so many mosaic inlaid floors that it was hard to imagine before I went there. It cost 10 Euro to go inside and everything is neat and organized with plaques explaining everything. I went by myself on... More

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
