We were really impressed about the beauty of the remains. It is astonishing to experience what the romans were able to make 2.000 years ago. It is really worth the drive to the place !! Do not miss !!

Certainly not worth the bother!! Agrigento temples are stunning and a must if in Sicily so are the ruins at Selinus. If it's the mosaics that interest you then visit the parliament building in Palermo. Now the mosaics in the chapel are something else!!! The roman villa isn't anything spectacular, it's over priced adequate ruins with adequate mosaics. I have been to many UNESCO signs across the world but this one certainly doesn't live up to the name.

The villa is an impressive and humbling reminder that life in the past was as elegant as today. The villa possesses the most magnifient ancient and well perserved mosiac tile floors anywhere on earth based upon the research and information presented. The tiles depict the Greek and Roman hunts throughout the Roman empire and how the animals were shipped to and from Egypt. The room tiles depict the stories of the culture at that time. One can easily recognize the rooms of the children, much like one can spot a room that is a nursery today. The villa can be very crowded so consult your host as to when times are best. If you arrive in a crowded time, do not rush as the crowds appeared to ebb and flow. Do not feel that you need to rush through this villa. Definitely not a place for strollers or wheelchars though. If you have a young child, consider placing them in a back carrier or sling if a baby. The audio guide was POOR. Recommend a guide book that you look through BEFORE you start so that you understand more fully what you are about to observe.

Don't miss this. Amazingly preserved mosaics which make you marvel at how these Romans lived. Go early as there are tons of tours, and they overtake the place.

Wonderful opportunity to see these remarkable mosaics, superbly preserved. Well organised site, and quite easy to park. Unmissable! Also, good value (adult entry fee is a few pounds, children free).
