Go Greek, Roman, Italian or Mafia in Sicily.

Picture Sicily as a fat history book with fascinating chapters. You can experience all parts in just a few days in Palermo. Here is one take on how to fall in love with one of the world’s most fascinating areas.

  1. Go Greek

Situated on a plateau overlooking the sea, with the Hypsasand the Akragas rivers nearby and a ridge to the north offering a degree of natural fortification, Agrigento was founded in the 6th century BC by Greek colonists from Gela.

The 8-hour excursion includes a short stop for a coffee (not included in the tour price) en route to Agrigento, before arriving at the Valley of the Temples. Visit the Hera, Concordia and Apollo temples and Hardcastle villa, with a guidebook that will provide more information about the sites.

You’ll have free time to decide on a place for lunch before your driver takes you to the Agrigento Archaeology Museum.

2. Go Roman

Piazza Armerina is a small town for two hours by road from Palermo. The town is famous chiefly for its Roman mosaics in the Villa Romana del Casale, about 3 kilometres (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.
