Piazza Armerina, Sicily: Villa Romana del Casale
Sicily’s Villa Romana del Casale was the mansion of a wealthy Roman senator who traded in exotic animals. Its mosaics, made of dozens of different kinds of multicolored marble and glass chips, give us a colorful peek at the lifestyle of Rome's elite.
