A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this villa contains a large numbers of well-preserved ancient Roman mosaics. They are colourful and beautiful, depicting many different scenes, such as hunting, fishing, mythological, animals and then there are the famous Bikini Girls. Worth a trip.

150 kms if you use toll roads taking about 2 hours; 203 kms without using toll roads taking 3hrs 16 according to Google.
I would like to know if you can hire an English speaking guide at the Villa Romana del Casale as quoted by Jaine C.
