The Villa Rustica in Hechingen-Stein. Take a stroll through the remains of a 1st to 3rd Century Roman villa in southwestern Germany. Includes a 3D reconstruction and panoramas. I was especially impressed by the heating system.

Great link, thanks for posting this. I just caught the entire BBC dramatization of I, Claudius recently and have been on a roman kick ever since. There was also a great show on PBS where they did their best to recreate how roman architects would build a bathhouse, which has more info on the heating systems they used.
