Day 1 - 2Excursion starts:
Fly to Catania. Upon arrival at Catania Airport, meet your personal English-speaking driver/guide in the arrival hall, who will take you to Piazza Armerina to visit the Villa del Casale, a very well preserved Roman villa, built between 330 and 360 AD, with the richest and largest complex collection of Roman mosaics in the world. The architectural style of the villa is very interesting because it differs greatly from the one of Roman urban houses in Pompei and Ercolano.
After about 75 min. transfer, head to Agrigento and take an unforgettable guided tour of one of the most remarkable sites in the world - the legendary Valley of the Temples, where the remains of seven Doric temples stand in a breathtaking setting of almond groves and olive trees.
Accommodation: Hotel Villa Athena
