We drove from Ortigia to this remarkable site in 2 hours. Well worth the drive! So many beautiful mosaics in excellent condition. Parking on site and great little cafes before entering the villa for refreshments and lunch - paninis, aranchinis, etc.

The incredible remains of a 4th century villa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For us, a professional guide was the best way to see and understand this fascinating place. The mosaics are simply incredible. Highly recommended.
