Villa Romana del Casale--Not

So from Siracusa we backtracked a bit--Vicki's phobia of squiggly roads on the map--getting eventually to Piazza Amerina and finally to the Villa Romana del Casale, said to be home of the finest Roman mosaics ever. (How many times have we heard that?) Anyhow, arriving at the Villa, a little man in a little Fiat informed us the Villa was closed until March 19. This being March 7 or so, we decided to head on, through more of the beautiful Sicilian countryside of groves of olives, lemons, oranges, cacti, even artichokes, and more, to Agrigento. Pity. I really wanted to see those mosaics of Roman girls in bikinis.

Oh well...
