Sicily is a world apart, an island separated from the rest of Italy not only by the sea but also by centuries of history and cultural experience.
The island of Sicily has an abundance of history. Some of the world’s best-preserved Byzantine mosaics stand adjacent to magnificent Greek temples and Roman amphitheatres, awe-inspiring Romanesque cathedrals, and over-the-top Baroque flights of fancy. Add in the spectacular sight of lava-strewn Mt. Etna plus Sicily’s unique cuisine – mingling Arab and Greek spices, Spanish and French techniques, and some of the world’s finest seafood, all accompanied by big, fruity wines.
Home to every great Mediterranean civilisation, Sicily is a rich tapestry of art and history. Some of the world’s best-preserved Byzantine mosaics stand adjacent to magnificent Greek temples
and Roman amphitheatres and awe-inspiring Romanesque cathedrals. Unforgettable sights abound: the panoramic perfection of Taormina; Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples; and the
spectacular sight of lava-strewn Mt. Etna. Add to this Sicily’s unique cuisine of Arab and Greek spices, Spanish and French techniques and some of the world’s finest seafood. Nature seems to have
endowed all its wonders to this land: mountains, hills and volcanoes and above all the sea.
Our originally advertised 7-day tour taking in Palermo, Agrigento, Syracuse and Taormina is now SOLD OUT. As a result of this level of interest we have designed a slightly shorter 6-day program concentrating on the eastern Sicily highlights of Syracuse, Catania, summit of Mt. Etna and of course the magnificent Taormina. Here the two tour groups will meet up for the last three days to partake in the significant education program there.
