Day 1 – Arrival Piazza Armerina
It’s now time to venture into the heart of Sicily, where you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find a landscape that defies expectations. The interior around Piazza Armerina is a lush and fertile region, where nature’s abundance thrives. You’ll stay in a charming agriturismo, a small-scale country house, that offers a true taste of rural Sicilian life. With a swimming pool beckoning you to take a refreshing dip, and a delightful restaurant offering mouthwatering dishes crafted from the farm’s own produce, you’ll be immersed in an authentic farm-to-table experience. It’s a working farm and a busy one too, producing wine, olive oil and harvesting fruits and nuts. Spend your days strolling through the verdant countryside or simply unwind with a good book by the pool.
Days 2-3 – Villa Romana del Casale and departure Piazza Armerina
Enjoy your free time to explore the region or indulge in “dolce far niente” – the blissful laziness that epitomizes the Italian way of life. Before you leave this peaceful place, there’s one more unforgettable treat in store for you – the Villa Romana del Casale. This impressive Roman villa, covered with mosaic floors dating back to the 3rd century, stands as the centerpiece of Central Sicily’s attractions. The intricately detailed mosaics, painstakingly preserved over centuries, were rediscovered in 1929, earning the villa its rightful place as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After immersing yourself in the history and artistry of Villa Romana del Casale, your journey through Sicily continues with the possibility of exploring the charming Baroque town of Ragusa, or you can venture to the fertile winelands of Mount Etna, where the volcanic soil creates a perfect terroir for producing some of Sicily’s finest wines.
