Not to be missed in Sicily are the mosaics at the Villa Romana del Casale, just outside the town of Piazza Armerina. We were there a little ahead of the season (mid-March 2005), and showed up as soon as it opened on a weekday morning,...More

A huge disappointment: the place is a shambles even by Sicilian standards. Beside the car park on the way in there is a really awful sub-Disney theme park version of villa with an outdoor children's disco playing "dance" music at very high volume. Then there...More

This is a must see in Sicily. Our tour group arrived early so were not hindered by the crowds. The whole place is amazing but the mosaics were the best we have seen. Our private guide's explanation was excellent. Without her, we would not have...More

As most of the reviews say, this place is amazing.. It was definitely, for me, the highlight of nearly two weeks in Sicily. However, be warned that it is very popular, so arrive early, or late in the afternoon or be prepared for crowds. We...More

We had visited Villa Romana 17 years earlier. The mosaics had remained in my memory from that time so I was pleased to make a return visit. If anything, the experience has improved as there are now proper walkways high above the mosaics which give...More

built about 300 AD near the junction of a river & a major road probably for a regional governor or member of the senate since it had 60 rooms (including state rooms). It was lightly raining but actually as we walked across original mosaics outside,...More

I have little doubt that these mosaics are amongst the finest in the world. The large area is almost completely covered and there are walkways from which one looks down on the mosaics. Not to be missed.

We hard abot these mosaics Two years ago, and it was a major reason for going to Sicily. We were not disappointed; they are magnificent, and you could study them for several days. The museum is nice built up so the mosaics will not be...More

On Thursday 27th September we visited the Villa Romana del Casale at Piazza Armerina. A 4th century Roman villa possibly owned by one of the joint Emperors. It is regarded as one of the most amazing archaeological discoveries of the last century. Following a landslide,...More

We drove here from Siracusa, and the trip was worth it. Amazing views en route, and the villa did not disappoint. It was busy, but we did not find the crowds interfered with our enjoyment. We didn’t buy a guide or an audio guide, and...More

You do not need a reservation and the ticketing office at the villa is entirely professional so I don not anticipate any long queues or waiting time. Every main town in Sicily has a tourist office and that you can look up on... More
