Piazza Armerina, Morgantina, Enna
You will meet your guide at ship dock or at tender mooring; he will wait for you handling the Onirikos arrival board. The guide will introduce you to your driver. They will escort you to Piazza Armerina in order to enjoy a unique experience.
All around there is the ancient village center, characterized by the small middle age streets and beautiful Renaissance- Baroque buildings. You will enjoy the most important monuments of Piazza Armerina are the impressive wide mosaics of Villa Romana built in the IV century A.D.
After the lunch you will explore Morgantina. The city may have been settled by a certain King Morges who arrived with colonists from central Italy around 1300 BC. Therefore, the early Morgetian culture was perhaps somewhat distinct from Sikel civilization. The Greeks absorbed the city six centuries later. It was sacked by the Romans during the Punic Wars in 213 BC, but eventually rebuilt as a Roman city populated by Hispanic soldiers. Morgantina was sacked again by Verres in 72 BC and abandoned around 30 BC following its destruction by Octavian. The ruins of a temple dedicated to Demeter and Kore have been discovered.
After Morgantina your driver will escort you to Enna. The ancient city was placed on the level summit of a gigantic hill, so lofty as almost to deserve to be called a mountain, and surrounded on all sides with precipitous cliffs almost wholly inaccessible, except in a very few spots which are easily defended, abundantly supplied with water which gushes from the face of the rocks on all sides, and having a fine plain or table land of about 5 km in circumference on the summit, it forms one of the most remarkable natural fortresses in the world.
After the visit your driver will escort you back to the Port.
