Description of Guided tour of Villa del Casale in Piazza Armerina

This guided tour of Piazza Armerina will make you discover one of the most beautiful Roman villas in the world, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and famous for its splendid mosaics.

The villa, built around the III - IV century AD, probably belonged to the patrician Valerio Massimiano. Thanks to its mosaics , it is possible to retrace the history of the Roman Empire and reconstruct the scenes of everyday life through the depictions of heroes and divinities, hunting scenes and games.

The Villa del Casale is made up of 48 rooms and is articulated around the quadrangular peristyle, which is accessed from the vestibule. The entire floor of the peristyle is covered with mosaics depicting European and African animals, while in the garden it is possible to admire a 3-basin fountain, covered with marble on the outside and with mosaics on the inside.

From the peristyle you then enter the Corridor of the Great Hunt , with two collonnaded apses and two female figures at the end that symbolize the two peripheral provinces of the Empire.

The tour continues with a visit to the room with the ten girls in shorts depicted in the various gymnastic competitions. The visit ends with the Circus room used as a gym with the mosaic of the room that reproduces the Circus of Rome.

The price includes only the visit and not any lunches and tastings. Furthermore, during the visit you will be accompanied by a qualified tour guide , expert in these places.
