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!
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!
A very long day, but the two sites were so well worth seeing. Good to be able to find our own way round the Roman Villa, after an interesting description from Santos first.
Highly recommend this tour. 6.30am - 7.30pm. 500km travelled. Long day but worth it. Our guide Alfredo was fantastic, really knew his stuff and looked after us superbly. We travelled in a Mercedes mini bus and was very comfortable . Both attractions were excellent but the highlight was the mosaics at the villa. Haven't seen anything like it. So well preserved. Great photo opportunities. Great scenery along the way. Plenty of comfort breaks. Well done.
