Description

Travel from Palermo to Piazza Armerina, admiring Sicily's beautiful countryside along the way. Wander the halls of the Villa of Casale, an excavated mansion from the days of the Roman Empire, and then travel to Agrigento to admire the temples at the archaeological site knows as the Valley of the Temples.

Meet your driver in Palermo and head south toward Roman Villa of Casale. Travel through the Sicilian countryside, a pastoral landscape of charming villages nestled between rolling green hills. After a scenic, 2.5-hour drive, arrive at the Roman Villa of Casale and step back in the 4th century as you explore the interiors on your own. This vast, UNESCO-listed complex is famous for its incredibly well-preserved mosaics, scenes of daily life and society that cover nearly 11,500 sq ft (3,500 sq m).

Next, head to a nearby restaurant for lunch—a light snack, water, and coffee are included, and you can opt to purchase additional courses, as well. From there, drive on to Agrigento and make your way to the Valley of the Temples, a cluster of archaeological treasures perched on a ridge above town. Depending on your group size, visit the temples on your own or with a guide, admiring the columns and architecture of the largest archaeological site in the world as you learn about its real history and legendary origins.

Prompt start to get through Palermo rush hour. Great scenery x interesting historic sites. Only own side was queuing for entry tickets but adequate time both locations. Lunch excellent. Well informed guides. Would recommend.
