Description: Villa Romana del Casale, located in Sicily, is one of the most luxurious of its kind. It is particularly worth mentioning for the affluence and quality of the mosaics that adorn nearly every room - the finest in the entire Roman world. As the centre of the vast estate upon which the rural economy of the Western Empire was based – the villa symbolizes Roman exploitation of the countryside. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  Villa Romana del Casale is located about 5km outside the town of Piazza Armerina. It is the richest, largest and most complex collection of late Roman mosaics in the world. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. --Wikipedia. Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License.
