Piazza Armerina sits high on a hilltop, with steep, narrow, winding streets and spectacular vistas. A little bit hard to find your way around, but really worth the visit; has a beautiful duomo, and the nearby Villa Romana is a must-see.

This is a well preserved Roman villa from the post-Christian period that was thought to have been used as a spa. It's well worth a visit for those interested in Roman archaeology but if not, one might be bored because its location is isolated not ideal for other activities. It is usually a day trip but a reasonably thorough tour... More

Like a lot of people we used Piazza Armerina as an overnight stay so we could visit Villa Romana del Casale, however, the city deserves to be looked at more closely, it has a lovely historical centre and the people here are extremely friendly, wish we had stayed longer to explore more of the city, will have to come back....

One of the most beautiful city of sicily ...surrounded by the wheat and spelt fields that have fed the roman army it is full of signs of the so different cultures that have settled in this place along hundreds of years. Take a walk through the small streets using a guide book then take the full afternoon to visit the... More

It isn't easy to get to Piazza Armerina -- but oh my, the journey is so worth it. What an astonishing archaeological site with some of the most remarkable Roman mosaics still in existence! The floor mosaics detailing the capture of wild animals in Africa, their shipment to Italy, and their display in the Coliseum are exceptional. The ramps and... More

These are the most awesome mosaiques I have seen. There are built gangways above the huge mosaiques so you easily can watch them. I did not know before I enterede how huge these mosaiques were - and the excellent quality!
