Villa Romana de Casale then PergusaJune 6, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 61 °F
The villa is famous for its Roman mosaics http://www.villaromanadelcasale.it and there are so many of them with many telling stories of the animals the owner had captured from many countries then sold to entertain the gladiators. It must have been a good business to build a big villa with under floor heating and swimming pools etc.
Then we came to Pergusa which is just outside Enna in the middle of Sicily up in the mountains. The hotel is a bit like a hostel and in our room we have one wall which is a blackboard for visitors messages so Mandy drew a picture of the car. We found a race circuit close by which was once plagued during a race by frogs from the lake it circles.

We are booked onto tomorrow night's ferry from Palermo to Genoa.
I will post pictures in the morning.Read more
