First Stop: Driving to the southern cost of Sicily, you will travel across Sicily by comfortable and air-conditioned vehicle. The tour will begin with the visit of the majestic archaeological area of the Valley of the Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Pindar, the Greek poet and writer, described it as “one of the most beautiful cities of those inhabited by mortals”. “Valle dei Templi” is  famous for its well-preserved temples, seven in total. Temple of Concordia is one of the best preserved Greek temples in the world helping the site to gain the classic UNESCO world heritage award.

Third Stop:  In the early afternoon we will be in Piazza Armerina, a city woven in the hearth of Sicily. In this city is located the splendid Villa Romana del Casale, majestic imperial villa originally the property of a powerful Roman family. Here you will find the best conserved in-situ roman mosaics in the world.
The Villa Romana del Casale houses mosaic flooring – figurative and geometric – , wall mosaics, columns, stutues, capitals and coins. Since 1997 the city is part of the UNESCO World Heritage.
Please Note that: our driver guide is not a touristic guide, so he cannot enter inside the historical places. He will give you information during the trip on the vehicle, before you will go inside.  A paper guide will be provided to be used inside the archeological areas.
