What You'll Do

  • Tour the luxurious Villa Romana del Casale, the most popular attraction in central Sicily
  • Explore the extensive Greek ruins at Morgantina
  • Visit the picturesque town of Aidone, home of the Venus of Morgantina
Enjoy the beautiful scenery and visit the most popular historical sites of central Sicily. Visit Piazza Armerina and admire the mosaics of the Villa Romana del Casale. Travel to Morgantina, the first Greek settlement in Sicily, and explore ancient Aidone.
What to Expect
Visit Piazza Armerina, one of the most important archaeological sites in Sicily, on a full-day guided tour. See the World Heritage-listed Villa Romana del Casale with its beautifully preserved mosaics.

The most famous room in the complex contains a mosaic of some girls that appear to be wearing bikini swimsuits, when in reality they are female athletes competing in events.

Stop for lunch (not included in the tour price), and then depart for the ancient city of Morgantina, which has been buried for nearly 2,000 years. See the agora and the Greek theater.

The tour continues with a visit to the archaeological museum in Aidone, housed in the Capuchin monastery. The Museum contains artifacts from the excavations of Morgantina, including the Venus of Morgantina, a 5th-century B.C. statue that was recently returned to Sicily by the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.

This important Greek statue stands 2.3 meters high, and has a body of limestone, with the head and limbs made of marble. The style and technique suggest the work of an artist of the school of Phidias.
