The Roman Villa

Near Piazza Armerina is the Roman Villa del Casale. It is the tremendous variety of styles that make the mosaics so intriguing. Mythological scenes, animals and birds, hunting and music. The owners lived in luxury. The villa had its own private thermae, a reception hall, large restrooms and living rooms.

It has probably the most extensive and spectacular mosaics of the late Roman era anywhere in the world.
