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 visited with my 14-year-old twins in August and was bowled over by the beauty of the mosaics and the quality of the restoration. The way they restored it, putting up walls so you could see the scale of the rooms, and beautifully recreating the...More

We were unsure if we should visit because Piazza Armenina is not very close to the autostrada-but we are glad that we took the time(we were driving from Siragusa to Cefalu) The Villa Romana is outstanding-it is huge and the mosaics are well preserved considering...More

From a non-expert point of view, it's a fascinating trip on life of Roman times.The villa is beautifully preserved and gives multiple examples about their daily life. It'll take about 2 hours to wander around, inside and outside it, and although the local guides approaching...More

A grand hunting lodge for an important and rich Roman. The preservation and very thoughtful and clever viewing walkways really give a fantastic insight into how the romans lived, their culture, etiquette and customs. A grand entrance for visitors with the baths and massage rooms...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
