Well worth a visit if you are in Desenzano, combined with the Museum of archaeology. Some descriptions are in English, though mostly German. & Italian of course.

We took a ferry to Desenzano from Garda one day. The Roman villa is very impressive and the mosaics are quite spectacular. There is an entrance fee but it is worth it and the quiet inside is welcome. As others have said there is a...More

This villa is well worth visiting. There is plenty to see of interest, not least the very well preserved mosaic floors. We went at the end of September and it was very quiet with only about six visiters.
