We will make a short refreshment stop and take in the terrific view; on a clear day, it enables you to see most of Sicily Island. Leaving Enna we drive to Piazza Armerina; the home of the most important Roman mosaics in Western Europe. A landslip in the 12th Century made the Roman Villa, home to the mosaics, lie under 10 meters of mud for over 700 years and hence shielded from the damaging consequence of air, wind and rain. We reach the heart of Sicily in Piazza Armerina and see the Roman Villa Romana “Villa del Casale”. The mosaics will leave you hypnotized so as the gigantic Baroque Cathedral of the Duomo. Time will be dedicated to lunch; your driver/escort will discuss your options depending on your needs.
After lunch, our tour continues to the city of Caltagirone, a charming hilltop town and is home to the art of producing handmade colorful ceramics. The areas of high-quality argil have sustained manufacturing for more than 1000 years. Here, we visit the ceramics museum, walk around and see some of the 120 pottery shops, selling typical pieces by famous local artisans. Stroll around the perfectly preserved public gardens and take a comfortable walk up the beautiful Scalinata di Santa Maria del Monte.
