What people are saying about Piazza Armerina
Well worth the visit to the Valle dei Templi and Villa Romana del Casa
Used Sicily Grand Tours for this trip. Alessio, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and his English is very good. He gives you a bit of the history of Sicily on the journey to Agrigento and the first stop at the Valle dei Templi where you get an hour and a half to explore on your own. We found this sufficient time including grabbing an arancino for lunch. Then it's off to the Villa Romana del Casa near Piazza Armerina where you again have sufficient time to view the well preserved mosiacs. Then back to Catania. Expect a long day as it is not a short journey from Catania but both sites are well worth visiting.
Alessio, our guide, was a gem. He was efficient, friendly and clear, and engaged the tour participants in generous conversations, with real skill. He took us to the temples at Agrigento and to the mosaics at the Roman Villa del Casale. On the way he gave us fascinating background information about where we were going and about the story of Sicily more generally. We found this very informative and stimulating. We greatly enjoyed his company, his help and his advice, and thoroughly recommend his service to anyone seeking a great day out from Catania or nearby accommodation.
The tour guide Francesco was very informative about Agrigento and well mannered and friendly. Improvements that I feel needs to improve, is to have a small microphone so the people in the back of the van can also hear what the tour guide says. The people sitting in the back all felt the same and agreed this needs to be improve. The people working Sicily tour guide are very polite and it was a pleasure booking with them. Rita Lucia☀️
Really enjoyed the day. Interesting locations and excellent local lunch. Our driver ( Francesca ? Not sure of spelling!) was excellent. He was so informative about the areas we passed through and the destinations. Well worth the cost.
We had an awesome day at Agrigento and Piazza Armerina thanks to our guide Alessio, who was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Sicilian culture and history.
