Walking through the Valley of the Temples always makes me feel surrounded by history. The columns of the temples were originally decorated, and your guide will point out some of the carvings that have remained visible for centuries; it’s a magical experience!
Great tour, with a wonderful local guide named Vittorio who made it lively and interesting
A Truly Rewarding Experience!
We enjoyed an entire day with travel time at Villa Romana and the Valley of the Temples, The Villa is a treasure which should definitely not be missed. The mosaics are superbly designed and executed. We have visited Roman excavations before but have never seen anything of this artistry and quantity. The Greek temples are in excellent condition and set in a beautiful location. Our Viator guide, Alfredo di Mauro, was outstanding. He thoroughly researched the history of these sites and gave a fascinating presentation. We felt fortunate to spend the day with him.
We scheduled a number of Viator trips in Spain and Portugal last year and continue to be favorably impressed by this agency in Italy.
The Temples are extraordinary, the local guides bring them to life. The mosaics are also one-of-a-kind. Both sites are mysterious, many details lost in time. Buy a Sicilian lemon squeezer at the mosaics, not available anywhere else!
The Valley of the Temples and Villa Romana are amazing places to visit and should not be missed. It is a long way to travel and the driving part of the trip was slowed due to numerous road works underway but this will make the driving part of the trip much better in the very near future. Despite it being a long day we would still make the effort as the Temples and Villa were well worth it.
A long time on the bus from Taormina, and a long day, but worth it. The Valley of the Temples was fascinating, and the mosaics at Villa Romana deserved more time to view them. The lunch break was too long, and in an area where there was very little to see.
Thoroughly enjoyed the temples, ruins and Villa Romana mosaics. The bus trip is a long one though. Be prepared for delays in pick ups and drop off times due to traffic conditions.
You just have to see this when you're in Sicily
It was a great tour and the guides were wonderful! It was a full day, so take water and snacks for the bus ride. It was very nice to have someone else do the driving because it was a long trip and a lot of walking once you got there but sooo worth it!
Great guide - loved Alfredo! Very good tour and well managed. Enough time and detail at each place without feeling bored and rushed. Definitely recommend.
This tour was amazing!
