Full description
Let yourself be surrounded by architectural treasures. On this 10-hour tour, your expert guide will introduce you to the marvels of the ancient world. The Valley of the Temples is amongst the most evocative sites of the Greek world and one of the most important complexes outside of Greece. You will visit the temples which stand on the high ridge overlooking the sea, walking the Sacred Way and discovering the magnificence of the Concordia Temple, which was converted into a Christian church in the 6th century and as a result spared from much of the devastation which afflicted the site over the centuries. You will walk between the Temple of Zeus ruins, the largest temple built by the Greeks but destroyed to build the harbor of the nearby town of Porto Empedocle.  After lunch, once you arrive in Piazza Armerina, you will visit the famous Villa Romana del Casale which has the finest collection of Roman polychrome mosaics, depicting scenes of hunting and recreation as well as representing mythological and historical episodes.

Fantastic sights and good to see in one day albeit a long one.

Please change the lunchtime restaurant. The service was atrocious and the food poor. The men's toilet was broken and disgusting. It would be a better use of time to just have a snack lunch taking maybe 45 minutes such that the whole day is shorter too.
