This monument is the most important historical remain of the Roman civilization in Sicily and the widest mosaics collection in Italy with decorations, portraits and amazing snapshots of the real life in the Roman Empire. The mosaic tiles are made with stones of various natural colours that have resisted the wear of time for centuries and centuries. Visiting the Roman Villa is an extraordinary unique experience for the eyesight and the mind: a dive into the past with images of 17 century ago.
