This villa is well worth visiting. There is plenty to see of interest, not least the very well preserved mosaic floors. We went at the end of September and it was very quiet with only about six visiters.

Desenzano is a quietish town with nothing like the attraction of Sirmione, and if you look behind the cafes on the lakefront you find this hidden gem of a roman villa. The mosaics are extensive and of real quality, some of real delicacy, and this...More

The site is worth a visit to see the excellent mosaic floors which have been carefully restored. The entrance fee is low (as seems to be the case with many historic sites) and it is located in the town centre.

If you are interested in history, you must visit Villa Romana. Very old mosaic floors and ancient walls. It's in the center of Desenzano.

The mosaics are some of the best I've seen. It's a site that's currently being excavated so I'm sure there will be more to see in the future. It's tucked away but well sign posted, there is a small museum but it's mainly wandering around...More

We went around the villa on a very hot morning. Very interesting and well preserved. Worth a visit although most of the information boards were in German, we managed.
