Piazza Armerina is a pleasant town of the inland, surrounded by pine and eucalyptus forests, on the Erei mountains.

The place became world famous after the discovery of a large and luxury Roman Imperial Age villa located 5 kilometers from the town.

The magnificent mosaics in the villa make the town one of the foremost archaelogical sites in Sicily.

It is one of Italy’s most famous tourist resorts; it lays 205mt above the Ionian sea, on the Mount Tauro overlooking two big bays.
