Villa Romana del Casale

This 3rd-century Roman villa features more than 40 beautiful mosaic floors, making it one of the most cherished open-air museums in the region.

Reviewed By CaroleNWashingtonDC - Washington DC, District of Columbia

No need to reiterate the five star reviews. Just wanted to add that although trip advisor says this is the number one site in Piazza Armerina for visitors, this was my number one site to visit in all of Sicily. The temples at Agrigento come second. I have been to Pompei and to Ostia Antica but was blown away by the diversity and extent of the mosaics at the Villa Romana del Casale. And they are still uncovering more. Sure, you have to make the effort to get there but the drive, in the pouring rain there and back, did not lessen the impression of these fantastic mosaics. The two negatives are that you have to pay for parking and that, although all the explanatory panels in each room are in Italian and English, the lighting was insufficient at times to read them. Do make the effort to go to the Villa. You won't be disappointed.

Villaggio Bizantino di Vallone Canalotto

Reviewed By ClintSpiteri - Island of Malta, Malta

This place Is a hidden gem..Thanks to Loredana (the tour guide) who made our visit a one to remember. the experience took us back in the very old ages, the days when the people of the village were using this place to survive and try to live independently. the location is a bit remote but it's worth the visit. within 300 meters there is a car park. This archaeological site could also attract nature lovers since it is surrounded with breath taking views and a wonderful walking trail. Site is also equipped with hand rails and information points, however since this place is not frequented by many people we would highly recommend to contact the site organization before making a visit to this place..

Museo Archeologico di Aidone

Reviewed By J S

Lovely museum, with some truly amazing pieces from the surrounding sites. In particular, the returned statue of Demeter (probably) is an exceptional piece that would not look out of place in the most prestigious museums in Europe; what's more, given pride of place here, in smaller gallery with no crowds, it really stands out.

Abazia di Santo Spirito

Reviewed By Carrie P - Greater London, United Kingdom

This is a wonderful privilege to experience as one of the oldest churches in central Sicily dating back to the time of Count Roger who eventually conquered the whole of Sicily as the invading Normans (same wider family!) a few years after the fall of King Harold at Hastings.This is a wonderful privilege to experience as one of the oldest churches in central Sicily dating back to the time of Count Roger who eventually conquered the whole of Sicily as the invading Normans (same wider family!) a few years after the fall of King Harold at Hastings. The construction is solid built of rough hewn stone in simple planimetry, which has a rectangular shape to the nave and characterized by a corner tower in the style of an apse.
The Abbey began life as a fortified farmhouse, and its rustic no-nonsense, no airs and graces build remains although transformed in 1092 into a place of worship for the evangelization of Muslims as the Norman invasion took hold and the Arab settlers were brought into alignment with the 'will of Christendom' though religious freedom held under the reign of Roger II.
The interior is very simple with some wonderful late fourteenth Century frescoes, of the ascended Christ giving his Blessing on the congregation as they enter the Abbey Church. There is a large stone font, a crucifix which is dated from the fifteenth century, with frescoes including the study of St. Augustine and the Mass of St. Gregory. There is plenty of parking but you do need a car to access this. Whilst here drop next door to the Archaeological Museum which is also a treat - and very under-visited. Two absolute gems in one.

This wonderfully laid-out large designer outlet village is VERY worthy of a visit - especially if you're in the mood for a shopping 'bargain'.
Many of the stores are wholly 'Italian' and therefore 'brand names' might not always be immediately recognisable but most are 'of the best' available in Italy and most offered substantial savings on all purchases (versus normal city/town store prices).
It was fantastic to find that most, if not all, stores were offering 'in-season' products - not last season and/or seconds.
I spent much more (than I'd intended to) during my 3-4 hour visit so in some ways, I'm glad I didn't visit for longer but if you do want to take full advantage, plan a whole day 'out' of your holiday for a shopping spree......don't worry, there are many places within the village where you can take a pit-stop for food/drinks so you won't loose energy!!
Enjoy!!

I 24 Cannola

Reviewed By marcopolo111 - Cleveland, Oh

This is a baroque and unique structure in the center of town, facing the valley which carries the clear water from a local river and spring which serves as aqueduct, Fountain, mill and theater stage. Original and interesting. Similar to many other similar attractions in Sicily, it is not well maintained and the space nearby is filthy.

Castello Di Sperlinga

Reviewed By joerussin - Glendale, California

In many of the ruined Castles around Sicily you have to work hard to imagine what it was like centuries ago. But there is enough still standing (or restored) in this castle to give you a real idea of what it was like back in medieval times. And the views from this top of the rock castle are outstanding. Get there in the morning if you can or mid-afternoon as it is closed from 1pm to 2pm. You pretty much have to walk up the hill to get to it as there is very limited parking space near the entry. And note that the castle is in Sperlinga, not Nicosia.
