Full description

Follow in the footsteps of the Greeks and Romans on a day trip where your transport is taken care of for you. Discover some of the finest Roman mosaics in the world at the Villa Romana del Casale. Learn all about the Valley of the Temples archaeological site with a licensed local guide.

Meet your driver in central Palermo and be taken straight to Piazza Armerina, where you will explore the Villa Romana del Casale independently. Marvel at the luxurious 4th-century villa, home to an influential Roman family. Take your time to examine its exquisite mosaic flooring. Continue to Agrigento for a guided tour of the magnificent Valley of Temples, built by the Greeks in the 5th century BC.

Diana and Kacomo our driver were superb. Diana spoke English very well and had tremendous knowledge of Greek and Sicilian history and the archaeological finds. Highly recommend the tour. Get your guide forces solo travelers to buy two tickets which is discriminatory. I wanted to go so badly I purchased two tickets so I could secure a spot. That is my only criticism

The guide was knowledgeable and engaging! He has an obvious passion for history and art and was generous in answering all our questions. The Greek temples and Roman mosaics were worth seeing! The lunch stop was delicious and relaxing too. You do not want to miss this trip if you are in Sicily for a few days.

The best way to from Palermo! The trip went great, we sopee for food and toilettes, and the bus was really comfortable. Marco, the guide was very charming and welcoming. He knows a lot about the history and story of valley of temples so we had an amazing experience. The Roman villa is a MUST and it’s quite in the middle of no we’re so this is definitely the best way to get there. Incredible experience! I recommend 100%!!
