La Sicilia tra Greci e Romani

Archaeological Area of Morgantina, Archaeological Museum of Aidone and Roman Villa of Piazza Armerina



In the middle of beautiful corn fields, the ancient city of Morgantina, which received a monumental lay out during the Hellenistic and Roman times, and the famous Roman "Villa del Casale" in Piazza Armerina, where visitors can admire the magnificent and technically perfect mosaics.


 In the middle of beautiful corn fields, the ancient city of Morgantina received a monumental lay out during the Hellenistic and Roman times: peristyle houses decorated by mosaics, a wide public square bordered by porticoes, a small and quiet theatre, and round altars dedicated to Demeter and Kore are still enjoyable on the site. The marvellous cult images of the Two Goddesses and the fascinating marble statue of Afrodite, coming from the sanctuaries of Morgantina, are finally exhibited in the Archaeological Museum of Aidone, after a long permanence at the Getty Museum of Malibu. The tour lasts 3 hours. After a break for lunch, we will reach the famous Roman "Villa del Casale" in Piazza Armerina, where visitors can admire the magnificent and technically perfect mosaics representing mythical subjects and hunting scenes made up of tiny and brilliant colored pieces of stones. The tour lasts 2 hours.

 Price pp: 1-2 pax €165, 3-5 pax €108, 6-9 pax €82, 10-20 pax €42, >20 €25
