Known also as Piazza Armerina, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, probably one of the most famous in the world. This Roman Villa shows how the very rich Romans used to live. Probably its owner was a senior aristocratic senator and at the same time a “Philosopher”, a lover of fine arts and poetry which can be “read” in the mosaics. Among the most amazing mosaic floors is the one of The Great Hunting Scene in a 66m long corridor, showing animals captured in Africa and shipped probably to Rome for the Games in the Coliseum.
