A luxurious example of Imperial Roman lifestyle, this 4th century villa sits outside Piazza Armerina just off center on the island of Sicily. Now a Unesco Heritage Site, the villa is particularly known for its amazing collection of mosaics, ranging from hunting images to bikini-clad women playing sports.
The villa underwent some decline and destruction, ultimately being covered by a mudslide in the 12th century. Excavations began in the 20th century and restoration on the mosaics is still ongoing. We share here a few examples of the mosaics that we photographed on our visit there.
