Mezzogiorno - Sicily: About Greeks, Romans and a Carthage general
Begin in the center of the island at Villa Romana del Casale, near Piazza Armerina, where there are preserved mosaics discovered in a Roman villa that was covered for centuries by a mudslide. From there, go to the southern coast city of Agrigento and visit the famous Valle dei Templi that overwhelmingly impressed Goethe in his visit to Sicily. Stop for a short while in Heraclea Minoa and in Sciacca, the famous center for ceramics in Sicily. Continue to Selinunte, the most southern Roman colony situated right on the sea, conquered at one point by Hanibal , the Carthage general and then on to Erice, a medieval town up in the mountains of the western coast of the Island, immersed in mist. End up at Segesta temple, a sister city and rival to Selinunte.
