Primavera en Sicilia

Segesta is an abandoned ancient city located in the province of Trapani, about 74 kilometers southwest of Palermo, roughly an hour's drive from the capital.
This large archeological zone, with its magnificent Doric temple, ranks as one of the best-eserved Greek architectural sites to be found anyplace. Strangely enough, it was built by the Elymians,
ith assistance from some colonizing Greeks themselves. Segesta's temple is situated in a pristine countryside, standing alone in tranquil beauty amidst nature.

The Roman villa of "Casale a Piazza Armerina"
It is highly likely that this was a hunting lodge belonging to the Emperor Massimiliano or a powerful Roman nobleman. The villa has 48 rooms covered by mosaics that were almost certainly put together by North African craftsmen as is demonstrated by the authenticity of the scenes depicted. These mosaics provide some details of the history of the greatest of all the Empires with its scenes showing daily life, depictions of heroic figures and the gods and other representations showing the hunt and games. The mosaics are arranged so that the depictions are seen at the entrance to every room.
