Desenzano del Garda Roman Villa

This mosaic garnished Roman Villa was discovered by chance in 1921, and is considered one of the most important witnesses of the great Late Antique Villas in Northem Italy. The owner’s name, Decentius, seems to have given rise to the place name, Desenzano, and, in fact, this Roman Villa is the centre that the town has slowly developed around Besides the walls, a good part of the mosaic fioring is still visible, with geometric patterns, fishing and hunting scenes, fairs and Cupids.

There is an Antiquarium in the entrance, which displays the various findings from the digs, with remains of statues, murals, items used in everyday life in the villa.
