The whole site is marvellous. We went on a sunny Sunday morning - the site was quiet and we felt we had it virtually to ourselves. The mosaics are amazing - and you can just wander about and soak up the atmosphere. There lovely views over the valley and hills. It felt calm & peaceful - I would really recommend... 更多
Only 11km out of Faro, this Roman villa is well worth the drive out, a well excavated site, it had many mosaics which are well preserved and an interesting exhibition, an interesting hour or two can easily be spent here.
The mosaics are amazing, probably should have got a guide book though. There isn't a huge amount of explanation of what you can see. Time your trip carefully if travelling by public transport, it really does only take an hour and you can end up with a lot of time to kill if you have miscalculated! (We did)
In the remains of the villa there are a lot of different floor mosaics that are still in good condition that can be seen. Good explanation of what the different rooms was used as.
A worthwhile trip out of Faro, particularly for people interested in roman history. If one doesn't have a car it is possible to reach Milreu Ruins by bus (it takes about 20 minutes). The entrance fee cost 2 Euros to visit the Ruins of very grand roman country villa with lovely mosaics and other interesting details. We can also see... 更多
These ruins were really quite good with lots of mosaics still present. There were not a lot of explanation boards or additional information but it was still nice to putter about for an hour.
Not well signed for those going solo and who don't know the area. There is some signage but not continuous enough to get you there easily. Once there though, it is a great location and some quite nice mosaics still to be seen.
A very worthwhile excursion out of Faro, especially for people interested in history, goes to the quiet, but attractive village of Estoi and the nearby Roman ruins of Milreu. Here one is really far away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy coastline. If one doesn't have a rental car, it is possible to reach here by public transport.... 更多
They might be gone in the near future. I am really amazed to see these mosaics without any protection against weather or tourists lying about the premises. Walls were crumbling under my very feet. Really worth to visit , take an hour or so. And then continue to the pousada de Estoi for lunch. Lights to read some explaining boards... 更多
