    If you do one tour in Sicily , make sure it this trip! The Roman Villa and Valley of the temples are really unique and showcase the complex history of Sicily. The Roman Villa is in a very good state considering the age and extremely well preserved.
    The tour is special because of the private Guide Mimmo's knowledge of these areas is quite extensive. He explained , in depth, the structure of the Villa, the purpose of the Mosaics , the history surrounding the region. We saw a few Bus tour groups moving quickly through whilst we still were being educated about individual rooms.
    Spending the day with Mimmo was a pleasant experience as well A native Sicilian with multiple languages and a GREAT sense of humour allowed us insights into the places we visited but also opened us up to the Sicilian culture , food , lifestyle as well. He answered all our questions in full and we came away after our week and a half holiday more the wiser simply because of this tour.
    Don't join the cattle .... I highly recommend this private tour.
