Villa Romana

On Feb 11th my friend Sharon took me to Villa Romana in Patti. It is so cool. It's an archaeological dig of a house from Roman Times, about 4th century b.c. I wonder if they found it while building the autostrada 40 years ago! I have a brochure from there but I would have to translate it. Here are some of the photos. I will post more for a few days until I have shown them all!

Beautiful mosaics floors. The photos don't do it justice.

You can see where the walls were!

Gorgeous arch!
More tomorrow!

Joanne--we found this place totally fascinating. You have so much to explore in your new life. I can picture where you are and I'm jealous.
