Piazza Armerina and Caltagirone

Depart to Piazza Armerina to visit the worldwide known Villa Romana del Casale, the richest, largest and most complex collection of late Roman mosaics in the world. This site, whose mosaics are considered the most beautiful and best-preserved of their kind, has been recently declared a Unesco World Heritage site. Free time for lunch. Proceed to Caltagirone, famous for the production of ceramics and pottery. During the visit we will admire the Cathedral of San Giuliano, built during the Norman domination, the Mother Church of S. Maria del Monte and the main attraction of the city: the 142-step monumental Staircase of Santa Maria del Monte, decorated with polychrome majolica tiles, using various geometrical patterns, floral, animal and decorative motifs.
