    A visit here is a must
    Surpassed our expectations and getting a guide , although not cheap, was worth it as Stefania made it come alive and explained the relevance of the different mosaics. She has excellent English and negotiated the crowds really well

    Stopped here while on way to Villa Romana for lunch. Then visited this church which is baroque and so not very ornate. The interior does have interesting blue and white motifs. Worth seeing if you have time.

    My friend and I were searching for a church when the curator found us on the street and invited us to see his museum. It is a quaint recreation of an old Sicilian farm house that evokes another time, another life. Tidy and full of interesting artifacts—some quite rare—this small museum is worth your time. A nice change of pace.

    This is the sort of town I love, it has a modern part and a higgledy piggledy "centro storico" where you can wander about and get lost and pass by the people who live and work there. Piazza Armerina is a bit worn down in places but you know I prefer it to Ortigia in Syracuse, where we went before coming here, even if it's not so "presentable" as it isn't so touristy. I think most people just come here to visit the Roman Villa which is a few kilometres away but it was nice to spend a day in the town too. The Duomo was beautiful outside and in. Maybe I shouldn't give Piazza Armerina a good review, so lots of people don't come and spoil it, but it would probably not appeal to some, as it isn't full of souvenir shops and finding your way around the little maze of up and down narrow streets leaves you a bit dizzy. So please don't come unless you can appreciate it as it is and let's not ruin it!!

    The downtown of Piazza Armerina is magic, enriched of history and art. There are many churches, these are so lovely.

    The municipal library - a must see in Piazza Armerina ! In the antiquarium room ( attached to the library), there is a collection of swords( one Norman sword ) statuettes , pottery, rifles from the First World War ,an icon representing the Madonna of Itria, two early Christian epigraphs , some old typewriters and a lot of ancient books .In short, a heterogeneous but interesting collection .
    There is no entrance fee .

    It's a wonderful little church with stunning frescoes inside, realised by the Dutch (Flemish) G Borremans. You may find it closed as it doesn't normally stay open outside of services but if you're lucky enough to get in (there are group visits organised) it is well worth your time.

    This is one of the churches you should always find open in Piazza Armerina. If you enter for a visit, ask to see the cloister, it is accessible via a small room and it's very nice.

    As I said in the title we parked next to this statue so we stopped and looked at it. It’s a WWl statue and I do believe statues from any wars should be looked at so to honor the men and women who were in them.

    Excellent signage and interesting choices of paintings, images, etc. The rooms are cheerful and businesslike. We were happy to find it open when other sites were closed.

    No point having such a landmark without being accessible to the public. The Castle is not well maintained although it has a rich history.

    Italy, like most European countries, participated in both world wars. This monument by the sculptor Andrea Manzella is dedicated to those who died in the first world war. Immediately after the war, they were installed in memory of the dead citizens of the cities where they are installed. This art Deco monument was opened in 1925 in the time of Mussolini, as an education of the Roman spirit to prepare for the future war. The second world war cost Italy already entire armies that died in the Libyan desert and the steppes of the Middle Don in the USSR. As payment for speculating on the memory of those who died in world war I.
