Arrival Piazza Armerina

It’s now time to head to the interior of Sicily, which you may expect to be dry and barren, but the fertile area around Piazza Armerina is surprisingly verdant and fertile. You’ll stay in a small-scale country house, aka an agriturismoin the South of Piazza Armerina with a swimming pool and a good restaurant. It’s a working farm and a busy one too, producing wine, olive oil and harvesting fruits and nuts. Upon arrival, take a stroll through the serene, rolling countryside or relax with a book by the pool.

Cooking workshop

Today you learn how this fertile area makes the region of Piazza Armerina the vegetable garden of Sicily. In the afternoon, you will go out onto the land with a local chef to collect some fresh, seasonal ingredients and prepare a custom dish. Afterwards you all sit down at a long table and a truly homemade fresh meal is served.

Villa Romana del Casale and departure Piazza Armerina

Even though you will leave this region today, it still has one more treat in store before you depart, the Villa Romana del Casale. This impressive Roman villa, covered with mosaic floors from the 3rd century, is the main attraction of Central Sicily. The mosaics in the former summer residence of a Roman emperor were only rediscovered in 1929 and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After this stop, continue your journey through Sicily to the Baroque town of Ragusa, or the fertile winelands of the Etna volcano.
