Southwestern Sicily

The Roman Villa del Casale

Any visit to the Southwestern Sicily should begin with a visit to the ruined Roman Villa del Casale at Piazza Armerina,

which contains simply exquisite , beautifully preserved mosaics depicting scenes of hunting and the life of the well to-do.

The Greek temple complex of Agrigento is also a highlight ,

though its proximity to busy roads detracts somewhat from its appeal.

By contrast , the atmospheric archaeological site of Morgantina is set in a lovely rolling country-side,

away from modern civilization.

The Southwestern Sicily town of Sciacca worth a visit for its spa facilities and views from mount San Calogero.

To really get away from it all, take a ferry to the isolated, volcanically formed island of Pantelleria and Lampedusa.
