Piazza Armerina

Piazza Armerina was featured in a previous post when Matt, Jason and I visited it after church many Sundays ago. This hunting villa was buried for centuries under a mud flow from a flood. The owner had exquisite mosaic tiles in every room of this country villa. During the winter months, which is the off season for tourists, much renovation work is in progress to maintain the quality of the sight. Laurie loved this villa and now has plans to renovate our house in Camarillo.

One of the best mosaics in my opinion.

We were both shocked that they would allow people to walk on this portion of the mosaics.
