Welcome to Piazza Armerina


Piazza Armerina is actually two towns in one: the original Piazza was founded by the Saracens in the 10th century on the slope of the Colle Armerino, while a 15th-century expansion to the southeast was redefined by an urban grid established in the 17th century.

The town makes a convenient base if visiting the extraordinary ancient mosaics at nearby Villa Romana del Casale.
