First step: Villa del Casale is a large and elaborate Roman villa located about 3 km from the town of Piazza Armerina, Sicily. Excavations have revealed one of the richest, largest, and varied collections of Roman mosaics in the world,for which the site has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The villa and artwork contained within date to the early 4th century AD.
The mosaic and opus sectile pavement exceeding 300 sq metres also are almost unique in their excellent state of preservation due to the landslide and floods that covered the remains.
