Description

Piazza Armerina is a small town two hours by road from Palermo. The town is famous chiefly for its Roman mosaics in the Villa Romana del Casale, about 3 kilometers (2 miles) to the southwest. It has a range of significant architecture dating from medieval times through to the 18th century. The discovery and excavation of the well-preserved, highly refined mosaics has helped attract tourists. The Villa Romana del Casale is a Roman villa urbana built in the first quarter of the 4th century and located about 3 km outside the town of Piazza Armerina, Sicily, southern Italy. It contains the richest, largest and most complex collection of Roman mosaics in the world, and has been designated as one of 49 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Italy. This tour is operated only with a Driver/Escort. The visit to the Roman Villa of Casale will be independent. The Driver/Escort is not a Licensed Tourist Guide. The Driver/Escort is not a Licensed Tourist Guide. Licensed Tourist Guides are the only professionals, with a regional license, permitted to conduct visits and tours in all sites and museums within a city. The Driver/Escort cannot escort people inside the monuments, because this is not allowed by Italian law. However, they have the competences to promote the most important highlights providing basic historical and cultural information. This tour is operated with a Licensed Tourist Guide on the spot to visit the Roman Villa.
