‘Mosaics! Mosaics! Mosaics!’
When you leave the Villa Romana del Casale in Piazza Armerina here in the heart of Sicily this is all you will keep thinking.
If you are in the area, you must visit this 4th century Roman Villa: it is one of the most luxurious of its kind and the mosaics here are simply amazing!
This beautiful historical site gives you a real insight to how wealthy ancient Romans lived. The huge mosaics of this large estate covered not only the floors but also the walls. With evident influence of African Art, the mosaics are filled with figures and geometric style patterns. Once belonging to a rich aristocratic roman senator, it is currently accessible to everyone. You can see over 3500 square meters of impressive mosaic floors.
