Villa Romana del Casale

Villa Romana del Casale

This Roman villa contains the richest, largest and most complex collection of Roman mosaics in the world, among which stick out detailed animal hunt scenes, daily life, horse race scenes and the famous “Bikini Girls”.

Built in the first quarter of the 4th century, the villa was the centre of a large agricultural estate ("latifundium" in Latin) believed to be property of a member of senatorial class, judging by the amount and quality of its artwork.
