  • Walk the huge underground space on a hot day; most of it is covered so it makes for a refreshing respite
  • See the remains of the original villa built between the 1st-2nd centuries, and study ancient, intact mosaics up close!

Villa Romana di Patti could have been lost to time! It was only rediscovered in 1973 thanks to work on the highway, but it covers a whopping 20,000 square meters.

Explore the ancient Romans' deep infatuation with mosaics firsthand – some of the treasures still hold their original coloring from the 4th century AD.

You'll also be able to see ceramics, fragments of inscriptions, carved bone items, and structures from the earlier villa between the 1st and 2nd century AD.

Swap your smartphone voucher for a paper ticket at the entrance.

The Tindari Archaeological Park is located on Via Monsignor Pullano, 54 in Patti.
