In some areas of Sicily, some Roman villas dating back to the 3rd to 4th century AD have been identified.
A particularly well known seaside villa situated along the northern coast of Sicily is Patti Marina, in the town of Tindari.
The excavations brought to light a vast area that might include both the residential area of the villa and the rooms used for the servants. A large peristyle again connects the spaces that overlook it.
In addition, there was a thermal bath system and two rooms with an apsidal and triapsidal shape that, although in much smaller proportions, reproduce architectural types present in the Villa Romana del Casale.
