Agrigento Valley of the Temples - Piazza Armerina

Mosaic Art of the Roman “Villa del Casale” tour

Sicily, land of many people, have seen the presence of Old Greeks and Romans too. In this tour we will visit the most beautiful places that these two people left us in this land: Agrigento and Piazza Armerina.

built in "limestone-tufo", the Temples offer a view particularly evocative in the dawn but especially in the sunset because they assume an hot golden color.
In Piazza Armerina we will see the Roman "Villa del Casale", Unesco world heritage site too. Built between the end of III century CE and the beginning of IV century CE, we suppose that it was belonged to a roman Consul or to Emperator M. Valerio Massimiano, said Herculeos Victor.
