I know it has been very busy in the past two years - just when I was unable to travel due to Covid!! BTW, you are the only other person I know - besides me - who was underwhelmed by the mosaics at Piazza Armerina. I even went back a second time, several years after my first visit, to see if I felt differently from a more "adult" perspective, but no. Anyway, if you go back to Sicily be sure to see the temples - not just at Agrigento but at Segesta and Selinunte as well. The Greek ruins in Sicily are more impressive than those in Greece!
Thank you for your kind comments. Yes, perhaps I expected too much or something else with Villa Roman del Casale. They were certainly very interesting and some more so than others. Perhaps I just found them somewhat repetitive after a while as they were all pretty much the same, somewhat monotone colors. I do wish I could have made it to Agrigento. It was in my itinerary for months and months and I didnít drop it until the day before I was supposed to go. Fortunately I did get to the 3 Greek temples in Paestum 2 years ago and enjoyed those very much.
