The trip was well organized with a great over view of Sicilian history during our journey on the bud to Agrigento. The trip guide answered many questions about customs we were t familiar with. The guide at the Valley of The Temples did an excellent job explaining the know facts about the area. I would greatly recommend this tour!

A very well organised day, amazing intact mosaics in room after room of the Villa Romana; stunning Greek temples and ruins in Agrigento. Lovely spot for lunch in the Valley of the Temples too. The guide Niccolo was brilliant: funny and informative. The guide at the Valley, Giovanna, was great too, very thorough but also warm and welcoming.

Nicola is a thorough expert in Agrigento & shares the history of Sicily as we travel... and Prof. Giovanna Lombardo a true scholar of Ancient Sicily provides a Wonderful Insight to the Archaeological Site in the Valley of The Temples... we ate at a really homey trattoria dishes that Nicola recommended. Yummy! Then Piazza Armerina ROMAN VILLA was Absolutely Fascinating where you're on your own, free to absorb at.your pace all those amazing Mosaics! Unfortunately my personal interest and fascination required a slower pace and one hour barely sufficed (for Me)!!
