  • Such a great historical place! I would say it is “must see” when you visit Sicily. These mosaic floors are really a treasure. They are still in a very good condition and it is a masterpiece from ancient times. You could understand how was the lifestyle so many centuries ago. This villa is surrounded by a nice park and you can relax in the shadow if it is a hot sunny day.
